This is a version, shortened for broadcasting, of the Raleigh Lecture delivered at the British Academy earlier this year. Mr. Tavlor speaks on the role Parliament, and in particular some politicians, played in the years 1914-1918.

Although Menander's work initiates the European comedy of manners, until fifty years ago it was known only in fragments. Since then parts of several plays have been recovered, but this year has seen the publication of a virtually complete new work, The Dyskolos, or III-Natured Man.
Hugh Lloyd-Jones talks about this play, which differs considerably from the Menander we already know.
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.
