The High Priest:
Talk by Ronald Robinson , Ph.D.
Fellow of St. John's College, Cambridge Dr. Robinson suggests that our understanding of the nature of national expansion has for too long been anchored to John Seeley's thesis in The Expansion of England-in its own day ' a great leap of historical imagination.' By drawing a distinction between formal and informal expansion, however, new light is thrown on the subject, and the speaker develops the idea of informal empire recently explored by Professor Vincent Harlow in his book The Founding of the Second British Empire.

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.
