A talk by Ian Finlay
In his talk this afternoon Ian Finlay is to throw new light on a rather dark subject and reveal some amusingly interesting sidelights on Hitler's career. For instance, there is the suggestion that Nazism might have been born on the day that Hitler learned that he had failed in the entrance examination for the Vienna Academy of Arts - the Fuhrer's first failure! It is not only the art of painting that comes under scrutiny, but music too, and reasons are analysed for Hitler's passion for Wagner.
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.
