Six studies in African anthropology by Max Gluckman
Professor of Social Anthropology in the University of Manchester
5-The Licence of Ritual
In his attempt to interpret the situation of the Roman priest-king who had to defend his life against his would-be successor, Sir James Frazer went on to consider ceremonies in which people of lower social categories are made temporary kings, in which women act as men and men act as women, and so forth. In this lecture Professor Gluckman interprets similar situations in African societies, showing how these rites of reversal-which include a protest against the established order--are intended to preserve and even to strengthen that order.

First of two talks by John Buckatzsch
A change in economic method from classical economics which is really a ' branch of philosophy ' to the study of national income and actual situations gives a hope that economics may become useful as an applied science. This was the question to which John Buckatzsch was devoting his attention during the last years of his life. These talks were recorded shortly before his death last August.
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.
