A study in misunderstanding by David Butler
Fellow of Nuffield College, Oxford
In his recent book under this title, Henry Pelling described the varying attitudes of the British Left towards America over the past hundred years. Mr. Butler wonders how far these attitudes are in fact peculiar to the Left.
by Joyce Cary
Mr. Cary has more unfinished novels than published ones, he says, but most of them are not necessarily abandoned. In his method of working they are an important source of new ideas and approaches.
(The recorded broadcast of Oct. 14) Talk by R. C. Hutchinson : Feb. 6
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.
