The twenty years' conflict between William Law the mystic and John Wesley : studied from their works and correspondence by T. 0. Beacheroft
Production by Douglas Cleverdon with Martin Lewis. Trevor Martin
Peter Neil , Olaf Pooley
' I was once a kind of oracle of Mr. Wesley,' wrote William Law. John Wesley's earliest biographers say that
Law was ' a great forerunner of the revival that followed and did more to prompt it than the rest of the nation taken collectively.' Yet the quarrel which distressed their friends was perhaps to be expected-a quarrel symbolised in the story of Martha and Mary.

The speaker, who writes in English but whose books are set in India, describes the difficulties which creative writers meet when ' pretranslating ' not only their own language into another tongue but also the assumptions and atmosphere of their country into terms comprehensible to English readers.
Talk by the Rev. H. H. Rowley
Professor of Semitic Languages and Literature
In the University of Manchester
The recent opening by Professor Wright Baker of the copper scrolls and the discovery that the leather scroll supposed to be the lost Book of Lamech was really an Aramaic work based on Genesis, has renewed interest in the scrolls discovered beside the Dead Sea in 1947. In this talk Professor Rowley discusses the most recent scholarly work on the subject, written by Professor Millar Burrows and published in America.

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.
