Second talk: October 8
by John Hale
Fellow of Jesus College, Oxford
Commanders have at all times addressed their troops on the eve of battle, but during the Renaissance the military harangue assumed a particular importance. To judge from contemporary accounts, the soldier had some chance of not actually being shot at or hewn at, but very little of not being spoken at. With the aid of examples, John Hale tries to show what part was played by the military harangue, both on the battlefield and to encourage enlistment.

' Spleen ': October 12
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.
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.
