A group of three talks and two discussions by philosophers
Truth and Meaning by Richard Wollheim Lecturer in Philosophy.
University College, London
'What is it for a proposition to be true? * Richard Wollheim discusses some difficulties in two contending theories of truth and suggests the conclusion that in any theory of truth the interesting thing is its theory about meaning.

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.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
