Third of six programmes
by C. V. Wedgwood
John Cleveland , who died 300 years ago today, was the most popular poet of the mid-seventeenth century. Despite the almost complete neglect of his work in more recent years, Miss Wedgwood believes that he deserves close reading both as a political satirist and as a master of the metaphysical conceit.
Written by Laurence Kitchin
Production by Douglas Cleverdon with Godfrey Kenton
David March and Arthur Young
The Trial of Machiavelli' takes account of the views of scholars upon this most controversial figure-the father of ruthless political morality, whose principles are even now being put into almost daily practice.
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.
