Pitt Professor of American History and Institutions in the University of Cambridge
Professor Hofstadter discusses the group of attitudes that go to make up the political outlook of the American extreme right wing. He instances McCarthy's ' the air seems to reek with intrigue ' as one among many examples of their ' paranoid ' preoccupation with the myth of a conspiracy.

Mirror of a Shire by Charles Wilson
To mark the 150th anniversary of the poet's birth Charles Wilson, Cambridge historian, speaks about Tennyson's little-known Lincolnshire poems—' all of the earth and earthy, grim, filled with the hard shrewd cunning of village life, yet also full of affection, humour, and understanding.' He shows how these poems illuminate not only a little-known aspect of the poet's personality but the society of the poet's own shire.
Mr. Wilson illustrates his talk with his own readings in the dialect he knew as a child in Lincolnshire.
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.
