Talk by Jacques Heurgon
Maitre de Conference
à la Faculty des Lettres, Sorbonne M. Heurgon reflects on the rich archaeological finds made last year in Burgundy by M. Rene Joffroy , and the light this Celtic burial throws on the ' Hallstattian ' culture of the early Iron Age and its contacts with Greece and Italy.
Dr. Alec Vidler , author of Prophecy and Papacy, speaks about Pope Pius IX as ' a symbolic figure who represents in its acutest form the problem of the relation between the Church of Rome and the forces and movements created by the French Revolution.' He refers to Pio Nono, the recently published study by E. E. Y. Hales.

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.
