Talk by Magnus Pyke , Ph.D.
Dr. Pyke casts his net widely: the specimens he collects to bring under his mental microscope range from green and blue placebos, through scientific jargon, to the little frills with which Victorians used to hide the legs of the dining-room table.
The Earl of Harewood talks about the Italian operatic baritone who made his debut in 1911 and who is famed for his interpretation of the title role in Verdi's Falstaff, from which most of the illustrations are taken.
Talk by Clovis Maksoud
Member of the Lebanese Socialist Executive
Mr. Maksoud describes the reaction of the Arab mind to European influences and suggests that for the future it needs to realise its three dimensions-Arab, Asian, and Western liberal: nothing less will do.
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.
