: New Judgment on EDMUND SPENSER

Four talks to mark the fourth centenary of Spenser's birth
1-' Who knows not Colin Clout ? ' by W. L. Renwick Professor of English
In the University of Edinburgh
Some of the characters in Spenser's poems -notably Colin Oout in the sixth book of The Faerie Queene—embody a good deal ot autobiographical detail. These characters are placed side by side with the figures belonging entirely to the world of chivalry and romance. Professor Renwick, who has for many years made a special study of Spenser, examines this rich and continually shifting pattern of fact and imagination, and argues that the relationship between Spenser's life and his poetry is unusually complex and not always properly appreciated.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
