A. E. Housman (1859-1936) by D. R. Shackleton Bailey
Fellow of Jesus College, Cambridge 'When I asked myself what it is that has made my readings of the Maniltus the most memorable intellectual experience of my life,' says
Mr. Shackleton Bailey , 'I look to a quality, which I find in no other comparable scholar to anything like the same degree. I mean his unremitting, passionate zeal to see each one of the innumerable problems m his text not as others had presented it or as he might have preferred it to appear but exactly as it was.'

An extract from
* Le Mystere de la Charité de Jeanne d'Are' by Charles Peguy tn a translation by Julien Green
Recited by Flora Robson
The programme adapted and produced by Christopher Sykes based on a suggestion by Alexander Dru
(A new production of the programme originally broadcast on April 6, 1955)
This Meditation is one speech from Charles Peguy 's poetic drama Le Mystère de la Charite de 7eanne d'Arc which occurs when the young Joan goes to 'Madame Gervaise,' a Franciscan nun, to know the Church's teaching on the doctrine of the loss of souls. In answer Madame Gervaise recites the events of the Passion with reference to the words of the psalm: ' My God, my God, look upon me, why hast thou forsaken me? '

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.
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.
