Ballet: Daphnis et Chloe played by the London Symphony Orchestra with the Chorus of the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden (Chorus-Master. Douglas Robinson )
CONDUCTED BY PIERRE MONTEUX on a gramophone record
by Leon Roth , F.B.A.
Drawing a contrast between myth which describes the gods in terms of man and monotheism which describes man in terms of God, Dr. Roth concludes that human advance is away from myth and that ' the recrudescence of myth which We have seen in 6ur day is a sign of a diseased condition.'

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

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.
