Mr. F. L. LUCAS, The Poetry of Clough'

ON November 13, 1862, Arthur Hugh Clough died at Florence. Matthew Arnold dedicated to him his beautiful elegy, ' Thyrsis, ' and probably Clough is by now as well known by this as by any of his own poetry. But in his own day he was a notable figure, and he is worth recalling not only as a poet, but as a pupil of Dr. Arnold at Rugby, a temporary follower of Newman at Oxford, and a Victorian ' character ' who knew almost all the great men of Victorian society and took part in most of its ' movements.' Mr. F. L. Lucas, who will talk about Clough this evening, is a well-known man of letters and a Fellow of King's College, Cambridge.

Monday-Night Theatre presents Cathleen Nesbitt and Hugh Burden in 'THE SIREN'

by F. L. Lucas
Produced by Frank Hauser
Wilde said that a man could be happy with any woman as long as he did not love her. F. L. Lucas puts it slightly differently in this play: One should never fall in love. It brings out the worst in people 'who might otherwise be quite civilised.' The play - first broadcast in the Third Programme last year - deals with George Sand's escapades in Italy with Alfred de Musset. The story is told by Dr. Pietro Pagello , who accompanied them. Tiring of de Musset, George Sand turned to him, and they went back to Paris together. But the affair, the one great romance of his youth, was short-lived. Recalling his memories fifty years afterwards he humorously remarks that he is famous, not as a pretty good surgeon, but for having been one of George Sand's lovers.

Browning

A selection of his works made by F.L. Lucas.
Reader, Cecil Trouncer (by permission of H. M. Tennent, Ltd.)
This series of selections from the major poets gives listeners for the first time an opportunity of hearing the great classics read aloud, which they have not had except in Time For Verse in the Home Service. Naturally it is impossible in twenty minutes to give more than a taste of the poet, but these individual anthologies should give listeners the essence of the poet's work in miniature

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.
