: DINNER AT 'THE PINES'

by Alfred Noyes
Swinburne lived for so long in complete seclusion at ' The Pines' that to the outside world he became a figure of mystery and awe, particularly to a young poet like Alfred Noyes. One day he received unexpectedly an invitation to Swinburne's home, and that evening more than fifty years ago remains for him an unforgettable memory.

: POEMS BY DAVID JONES

Fragments of two works in progress introduced by Aneirin Talfan Davies and read by the poet
The Wall: This poem is an extract from an uncompleted work. It is a small part of a lengthy soliloquy which in places becomes a colloquy between two soldiers of a Roman unit doing guard-duty on the walls of a city in the Near East in the days of Tiberius.
The Tutelar of the Place: This is a fragment of a work in progress which is in effect a prayer for us to be saved from the men who plan.' 4 In the days of the central economies,' the poet begs that ' the hedges of illusion ' be set up 'round some remnant of us.'
(The recorded broadcast of December 18 in the Welsh Home Service)

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.
