: TIME AND STRUCTURE IN WRITING

Talk by John Holloway
Modern literary criticism, the speaker suggests, in its concern with the detailed analysis of individual passages and with those elements that can be discussed under the heads of 'imagery' or ' theme,' has overlooked a whole dimension of literature. Any successful piece of writing, he says, is essentially a sequence and structure in time, and he proposes an approach in terms of a work's ' path ' or ' trajectory.'
This talk was occasioned by Donald Davie 's recent study of the role of syntax in poetry, Articulate Energy.

: JEWISH BENEDICTIONS AND DOXOLOGIES

by Hugh J. Schonfield D.s.Litt. , Dr. Schonfield, who is a Jew, has recently undertaken a translation of the New Testament, which appeared as The Authentic New Testament. In making his translation he noticed the accuracy of the Gospels in quoting Jewish prayers current in the first century. In this talk he discusses some of the forms of benediction and doxology employed in the synagogue and in daily life, and illustrates from the New Testament their use by Jesus and in the Epistles of Paul.

: Anthony Jacobs Milton Rosmer and Marjorie Westbury in 'THE JAPANESE FISHERMEN'

In 1954 some Japanese were fishing in an area of the Pacific which, unknown to them, had been selected for nuclear experiments. They and their catch, and eventually almost the whole of their village, were infected by the fission-products. Herr Weyrauch has woven a highly stylised but moving tragedy around a possible but fictitious aftermath.

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.

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.
