: Three Years of the Indian Constitution

Talk by W. H. Morris Jones
'By almost any standard,' says the speaker, 'three years is a very short period in the life of a constitution, and it is little more than three years since the republican constitution of India was inaugurated.' He nevertheless believes that the moment is opportune to see how far the Indian constitution is fulfilling its function in the country for which it was designed. Mr. Morris Jones, one of the constitutional advisers to the Viceroy in 1947, is now a lecturer in Political Science at the London School of Economics.

Talk by John Holloway
The speaker points out that in spite of efforts made in the nineteemhocentury by poets such as Tennyson, Arnold, Morris, and Doughty to revive the spirit and practice of epic, the long narrative poem has become virtually an anachronism in England. He examines possible reasons for this and discusses the question whether some of the elements in early epic poetry can still be relevant today.
John Holloway is Lecturer in English in the University of Aberdeen.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
