On August ii and 12, 1953, the town of Lixouri in Cephalonia, in the Ionian islands of Greece, was entirely destroyed by an earthquake. Three months later
Kay Cicellis revisited the town, where she had spent her childhood. The Death of a Town is her imagined impression of the catastrophe as told in the recollections of six of the survivors.

A series of seven talks
1-F. H. Bradleyby Richard Wollheim Lecturer in Philosophy in the University of London
Many people today are mystified or irritated by contemporary philosophy: they feel that the traditional concerns have been shelved in favour of a trivial enquiry into words. This series is designed to remove such misgivings by showing the real motives and intentions which over the last fifty years have produced the analytical movement. In this first talk Richard Wollheim discusses the last great representative of the metaphysical tradition against which the younger thinkers revolted.
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.
