Talk by W.John Morgan
Welsh correspondent of The Observer
The Welsh Rugby Union celebrated its seventy-fifth anniversary last October, and this talk is broadcast on the occasion of the annual Rugby match between England and Wales, played today at Twickenham.
In his talk the speaker points out the striking absence in serious English fiction of characters expert in the popular sports, and comments on the behaviour of crowds and players at early Welsh Rugby matches.
by Nikolaus Pevsner
3-Reynolds and Detachment
Sir Joshua Reynolds 's discourses to students of the Royal Academy express a doctrine which he himself never followed. Young painters, he said, were to study and imitate the antique and the historical, however wearisome this might seem at first, and thus avoid the vulgarity of the faithful portrait. Dr. Pevsner finds the discrepancy between precept and practice profoundly English.
Perpendicular England: January 28

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.
