Rumanian folk music is remarkable for the enduring vitality of its tradition, the mastery of its performers, and the rarity of many of the instruments used. The creation of new folk song flourishes, and ancient songs and customs survive in a completeness unparalleled in Europe.
The recordings used are from the Archive of the Folklore Institute of the Rumanian Republic.

Professor J. E. Neale has completed his trilogy on the Elizabethan House of Commons with Elizabeth and her Parliaments, 1584-1601. Mr. Pennington contrasts Elizabeth's handling of her last Parliaments with that of James I, her successor, and uses Professor Neale's new evidence to explore the question how far the failure of the Stuarts was due to their own ineptitude and how far to causes already apparent before Elizabeth's death.

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.
