: DESEGREGATION: THE SOUTH'S NEW DILEMMA

Talk by John Hope Franklin Professor of History at Howard
University, Washington, D.C.
Since racially segregated schools were declared unconstitutional in the U.S.A. in 1954 ' the South has persuaded itself,' says Professor Franklin, ' that a real dilemma exists. It regards itself as faced with the alternative of yielding to a specious sociological Supreme Court decision that presumes to interfere with its internal affairs, or of maintaining its right " by lawful resistance " to preserve its local and racial integrity. Thus it proceeds to wrestle with an age-old problem in the age-old context of honour and morality.'

: TENNYSON'S ENOCH ARDEN'

A melodrama for voice and piano by Richard Strauss
Produced by Raymond Raikes
Melodrama, as Ernest Newman has pointed out, originally meant drama allied with music; today the word is used for a union of speech and music in which the words are not sung but spoken. With melodrama there are no translation problems: since the words are not fitted to any particular melodic notes or pitches, the speaker can adapt the time-length of each of his lines to that of the relative bars of the music. Hence with a melodrama such as Enoch Arden, which was composed to a German translation of the English text, Tennyson's original words can readily be substituted.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
