Richard Porson (1759-1808) by R. M. Ogilvie
Fellow of Balliol College, Oxford
It was Porson who first brought the necessary discipline and scientific criticism to the study of classical texts. He greatly admired Bentley; he once said that when he was seventeen he knew everything but when he was twenty-four and had read Bentlev he reatised that he knew nothing. Nonetheless, he saw that before using imagination or conjecture a scholar should establish the earliest recoverable state of the text.

8-The Decline of the Left
In Professor Wright Mills's view there b a world-wide collapse of the left today. It is due, he thinks, to the ' establishment ' of the left in Western Europe; to the two-party system monopolising political activities in the U.S.A.; and to the lack of legal basis for any opposition in the U.S.S.R.
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.
