In his second talk on French North Africa, which he has recently visited, Lord Kinross speaks about the political evolution of Tunisia. He considers the problem of reconciling the interests of the French settlers with those of the Arab population and refers in this connection to the situation in Algeria.
First: of two talks by G. R. Driver
Professor of Semitic Philology in the University of Oxford
The American Revised Standard Version of the Bible was published simultaneously in the U.S.A. and in this country last September. The New Testament had already appeared six years earlier, and attention has therefore been directed mainly towards the Old Testament. In this talk Professor Driver examines the quality of the Old Testament as a translation. He himself is a prominent member of a committee engaged on a completely new translation of the Bible into English.
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.
