THE REITH LECTURES 1967

A Runaway World? by Edmund Leach Provost of King's College, Cambridge and University Reader in Social Anthropology
3: Ourselves and Others
Our feeling that we stand opposed to nature and also to the products of our own technology is part of a more fundamental actagonismthe split which separates ' us ' from the ' others.' Whether the ' others ' be the mysterious they' of government. or bloody foreigners.' or ' these awful youngsters,' or the despised old, they are symptoms of a fragmented way of living which generates loneliness. anxiety, and violence.

THE REITH LECTURES 1967

A Runaway World? by Edmund Leach
Provost of King's College, Cambridge and University Reader in Social Anthropology
6: ' Only Connect....'
We should not panic because enriched human experience fits less and less tidily into the compartments devised by Greeks, Romans. ancient Hebrews, headmasters, parents, dons, or ecclesiastics. New ways of thinking, which connect rather than separate, can provide a continuous feedback between the contemporary experience of crisis and an optimistic planning of the future. We must grasp at the stupendous idea that human creative potentiality has no limit at all.
Rptd.: Mon.at7.30pm. (Third) This talk will be printed in ' The Listener ' dated December 21
The series will be published in book form by BBC Publications early in 1968

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
