Talk by Erich Heller
Before 1939 Ernst Jiinger had come to be regarded as the spokesman of a nihilistic generation in Germany who felt that the experience of war had given the lie to all traditional beliefs and ideals. His work illustrates, says Professor Heller, a typically Germanic perversity of the spirit. Yet when, in 1939, he published On the Marble Cliffs it was immediately suppressed by Hitler's censors, who rightly regarded it as an attack on the regime. His more recent work seems to suggest that Jiinger has abandoned his former heroic nihilism.

Charles Mitchell considers two current exhibitions of industrial design at the Royal College of Art and the Italian Institute. He talks about changes of the last fifty years in terms of an aesthetic revolution-from the anti-classicism of the Morris movement to the classic assumptions of modern design.

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.
