A group of three talks and two discussions by philosophers
Truth and Meaning by Richard Wollheim Lecturer in Philosophy.

Readings of Emily Bronte's poems
With commentary by Ian Watt
Julia Lang and Frank Duncan
Ian Watt , Professor in the Department of English at the University of California, Berkeley, introduces poems by Emily Bronte , some famous, some almost unknown; and he shows how a knowledge of her childhood fiction ' The Kingdom of Gondal ' throws light on many of her poems, removing them from the context of personal self-analysis to that of objective and universal human experience.
Produced by Christopher Holrne
An Illustrated talk by the Rev. Basil Minchin
Mr. Minchin, Vicar of the parish of Bedminster, Bristol, contends that the liturgical movement and the drive to present the Bible as the Living Word of God to his people-hoth characteristic of Roman Catholicism in France at the present time-may be separate in origin, but have grown inseparably together.
To illustrate his theme he uses excerpts from recordings made at the great Vigil in honour of the Word of God, for the Centre de Pastorale Liturgique, at Strasbourg in 1957. The music is chiefly the work of the Gelineau school.
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.
