The Artist and his Public—7


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.
A Discussion between Eric NEWTON and ERNEST HOLLOWELL , Leader of a Manchester Listening Group
A half-way stage has now been reached in this series, which is really an exhaustive inquiry, not only into modern ' art, but into art in general. In six talks
Mr. Eric Newton , who is conducting the inquiry, has addressed the jury of listeners. He has tried to explain to the lay mind what the artist is getting at, what he sees and what he wants you to see. Mr. Newton has discussed ' Beauty ', and, in defence of the 'moderns ', reminded his listeners that the credo of Keats, ' Beauty is truth, truth beauty', can be applied to ugliness as well as to loveliness. He has discussed style, choice of medium, and craftsmanship.
And now this evening, before examining experts in later broadcasts, he is to put a layman in the box. And it should be absorbingly interesting to know what this layman—the leader of a listening group-makes of it all. Which school is he for ? The old or the new ? And is it a matter of his age ? Or is he dispassionate ? Is he puzzled ? What sort of questions will he ask Mr. Newton ? And what sort of questions will Mr. Newton ask him ?

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.
