by V. L. ALLEN
Lecturer in Industrial Economics, University of Leeds

Produced by R. D. SMITH tThird broadcast
All for Love was first played by the King's Company at Drury Lane in the winter of 1677-78. Dryden had previously advocated rhyme as the proper medium for tragedy, but in All for Love he felt a need for greater freedom of expression: ' In my stile I have profess'd to imitate the divine Shakespere; which that I might perform more freely, I have disencumber'd myself from rhyme. Not that I condemn my former way, but that is more proper to my present purpose.'

: IS PIDGIN ENGLISH?

Last of three talks by PROFESSOR RANDOLPH QUIRK
First is to be heard a passage from Gud Nius Mark i Raitim, the Gospel according to St. Mark in the Neo-Melanesian language. This rich, consistent, systematised form of ' pidgin English,' spoken in New Guinea, is virtually a foreign language-differing as much from the English we speak as modern Portuguese, say, differs from the Latin of Cicero.

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

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
