Talk by R. T. McKenzie
The Negro vote will be an important factor in the Presidential Election this year. Mr. McKenzie, who lectures in political sociology at the London School of Economics and Political Science, travelled widely this summer in the United States, where he attended the Party Conventions and also investigated conditions in the South. In this talk he considers the changing political attitudes of the Negro electorate on the basis not only of statistics but of conversations with Negroes in many walks of life.

The second of two talks by Frank Kermode
The seventeenth century ' dissociation of sensibility ... from which we have never recovered' (in T. S. Eliot's very successful formulation) should be seen, Mr. Kermode suggests, as a local variant of the doctrine of the Renaissance as a great spiritual disaster. ' The myth of catastrophe,' he said in his first talk, was imposed upon English literature not after a dispassionate survey of the facts but in order to satisfy certain needs that became urgent in the nineteenth century.' In this talk Mr. Kermode tries to determine what these needs were and suggests that the myth itself has served its turn and should be discarded.

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.
