Part 2: from London


Selected and introduced by Thomas Parkinson
Associate Professor of English,
Berkeley University of California
The ' paleface ' tradition of American poetry-the sophisticated, cosmopolitan manner of, say, Wallace Stevens-is readily understood by English readers. The ' redskin ' tradition, represented by a poet such as William Carlos Williams, is not so easily accepted here.
Professor Parkinson discusses recent volumes by Williams, Allen Ginsberg , Josephine Miles , and the English poet
Charles Tomlinson , whose work, he believes, is in this tradition. Mr. Ginsberg and Mr. Tomlinson read their own work.
Reader, Josephine Burge ,

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
