: THE LINCOLN PASSION

Edited from the 15th-century
Lincoln Cycle of Mystery Plays arranged for broadcasting in three parts and produced by RAYMOND RAIKES with music by CHRISTOPHER WHELEN
Part 2: Prologue of Expositor; King Herod; The Trial before Annas, Cayphas, Pilate, and Herod; Pilate's Wife's Dream; Condemnation and Scourging; Procession to Calvary; Crucifixion; Blind Longeus
The manuscript (MS. Vespasian D.viii of the Cotton Collection in the British Museum) is written in Middle English, in the East Midland dialect, and these plays belong to the city of Lincoln. Unlike other extant Mystery cycles, this one is not connected with the trade guilds of a town. It is a compilation of Old and New Testament plays by different authors for performance under the jurisdiction of the clergy.
Part 3: April 14

: THE CRITIC AND THE COMMON READER

GRAHAM HOUGH gave three talks last year under the title of ' The Muse and her Chains ' on the place of literature in our current intellectual life. In three more talks Mr. Hough picks up some aspects of his earlier discussion 1: The Function of Criticism
A common public notion of the critic-as the Canadian critic Northrop Frye has put it-is that of an educated shrew. It is useless to try to get rid of the word, but Mr. Hough believes it needs a thorough disinfecting.

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.
