Kaleidoscope

Shazam! Not Just Kids'Stuff To George Orwell they were
'penny dreadfuls', offering little beyond 'bully worship and the cult of violence'. How have comic books and cartoon characters endured to become so inextricably intertwined with British culture, language and art? And why should they provide such a fertile ground of imagery and inspiration for poets, novelists and film-makers?
Jeffry Richards reports. Producer WILL CANTOPHER (Re-broadcast next Monday)

A compilation of the best of the arts of 1986 presented by Russell Davies, including:
Media: it was the year of the new newspapers, Today and The Independent, of daytime television, of Heimat and The Singing Detective.

Books: Garrison Keillor made the bestseller lists with his novel based on his cult
American radio show Lake Wobegon Days and Kingsley Amis won the Booker Prize for The Old Devils.

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.
