2-Closing the Gap
The gap between the study of sounds and the study of meaning in language is being closed as the method of analysis proves applicable to both. It appears at the same time that linguistic methods have become more akin to the familiar procedures of literary criticism.

Talk by John Summerson
Curator of Sir John Soane 's Museum
The vanished palace of Theobalds in Hertfordshire built by Lord Burghley in 1564-85 was one of the greatest of Elizabethan houses and architecturally perhaps the most influential of all. Mr. Summerson, who has been working on a reconstruction of the house, describes some of the results of his investigations.
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.
