3: Traces of the Epic in Africa by K. P. WACHSMANN
DENYS HAWTHORNE Produced by DOUGLAS CLEVERBON
Epic poetry' requires many ingredients; amongst them are heroic themes, composition in lines, great length, and historic associations. There is some evidence that the peoples of Africa were at one time or another, inclined towards this art form, but conditions were not often favourable to the growth and survival of the epic. But the remaining traces are of interest to students of literature and music alike.

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.
