W. H. AUDEN

The last of his four
T. S. Eliot
Memorial Lectures on Secondary Worlds-Art and Truth
4: Words and the Word
Language is the impersonal code we use as individual members of the human species, but it is more than that. Language proper is voluntary, conscious speech, uttered by one unique person to another. In its purest form it is poetry; and in it we attempt to make analogies of what we hold sacred. Mr. Auden concludes by examining the demand that Christianity makes upon language and upon the nature of imagination and the function of the artist.
The lectures, endowed by T. S. Eliot 's publishers, Faber and Faber, were delivered in the University of Kent in October and recorded at the time for the Third Programme.

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.
