Lionel Trilling speaks about the novel by Jane Austen.
'We never know where to have it. If we finish it at night and think we know what it is up to, we wake the next morning to discover that it is up to something else. It has become a different book. The effect is extraordinary, perhaps unique. This book is like a person -not to be comprehended fully and finally by any other person. Perhaps it is to the point that it is the only one of Jane Austen's novels that has for its title a person's name...'
by R.F. Kahn, Professor of Economics in the University of Cambridge
Professor Kahn believes that while on balance Britain will almost certainly be better off by being associated with the common market than by remaining aloof, it is by no means clear that this represents anything better than the lesser of two evils. Much will depend on the manner in which a free-trade area is organised and operated.
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.
