The Anaihemata is concerned with the inheritance of Western civilisation as perceived by ' a Londoner of Welsh and English parentage, of Protestant upbringing, of Catholic subscription.' The action takes place against the background of the Mass and thus, symbolically, of the Crucifixion. Of the eight sections, Rile and Fore-Time describes the emergence of man-as-artist. Middle-Sea and Lear-Sea recalls the flowering of civilisation on the shores of the Mediterranean, whence a ship sails to Lear's island of Britain. In Angle-Land the ship is driven by storms to the North Sea; in Redriff it is berthed in the Pool of London. The Lady of the Pool evokes the Roman foundations of the City. Keel, Ram, Stauros has for its theme the Tree of Calvary. Mabinog's Liturgy recalls the Annunciation and the Nativity, with an interlude on Guenevere at the Christmas Mass. Sherthursdaye and Venus Day describes, symbolically, the events of Maundy Thursday and Good Friday. The work ends with the theme of the Holy Cross.
The Lady of the Pool:
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.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
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.
