: * JOHN MILL'S ART OF LIVING

by ALAN RYAN
Lecturer in Philosophy in the University of North Staffordshire
Mr. Ryan corrects some very general misapprehensions and reasserts Mill's principle that human conduct may be subject to any or all of three types of appraisal, legal-moral where actions are other-regarding, prudential and aesthetic where they are not other-regarding.

ACT 2

: ALBERTO GIACOMETTI

talks to DAVID SYLVESTER (in French)
Alberto Giacometti is widely considered to be the greatest of contemporary sculptors, and one of the finest living painters. Born in Switzerland in 1901, he has lived in Paris since 1922. In the early 1930s he was a leading surrealist, then stopped exhibiting for fourteen years, emerging as creator of figures and heads notorious for their attenuated proportions. A large retrospective exhibition of Giacometti's sculpture and paintings has just opened at the Tate Gallery in London
Introduction and brief summaries in English by DAVID SYLVESTER

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 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 find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

This is a historical record of both 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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.
