A dramatic poem by Robert Browning
An abridged version in nine parts
Part 2 (from Books 2, 3. and 4) MARtUS GORING as ' Half-Rome' JAMES MCKECHNIE as 'The Other Half-Roma '
HUGH BURDEN as ' Tertium Quid'
'Half-Rome' speaks the day alter the murder and ' finds much excuse tor Guido. His opinion is coloured by jealousy of his own wife.
' The Other Half-Rome,' speaking the next day, has found his way to the hospital cell where Pompilia lies dying. Her beauty and calm of spirit move him to speak in her defence.
* Tertium Quid,' two days later, makes his account of the murder an opportunity to demonstrate his shrewdness and turn of elegant phrase to a distinguished audience in the hope of personal advantage.

Lecturer in Philosophy x In the University of London

Second of two talks
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.
