Strangers came gladly to thee Exiles, chosen of men,

Last of four lectures by Bonamy Dobree
Professor of English Literature in the University of Leeds
By permission of the Master and Council of Trinity College, Professor Dobree has been broadcasting a shortened version of four of the Qark Lectures for 1953 recently delivered in Cambr:dge. In the lectures he has iMustrated his thesis of the development of certain ' great impersonal themes in English poetry by tracing the course of two of them: stoicism and patriotism. He ends tonight's lecture by asking for a change in the climate of literary criticism to encourage a poetry that can be more widely read and enjoyed.
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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
