Architecture at the Crossroads


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
The fifth of ten films about contemporary architecture Berlin: a City for People Next year the once devastated inner-city of Berlin sees the most exciting and historic event in present-day city planning. It has taken eight years to create the mammoth International Building Exhibition, with a cast list of contributors that reads like a Who's Who of contemporary architecture. Its focus is on social housing within the modern inner city. But the new ideas it proposes will not be hung on walls or exhibited as scale models.
The venue for the exhibition is the city itself, real houses and building complexes, already inhabited, and designed to demonstrate how the city can once again become a place fit for people. This programme features the work of OSWALD MATHIAS UNGERS.
HANS HOLLEIN , ROB KRIER and ALDO ROSSI. Their ideas could well become prototypes for the rest of the world, and their experiments prove that, instead of overall planning, individual solutions to building for the people can be hammered out with the people themselves. Narrator ANDREW SACHS
Associate producer ROGER LAST
Written and produced by PETER ADAM

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.
