A Discussion between ERIC NEWTON and R. H. WILENSKI
This evening listeners are to hear a clash between Mr. Eric Newton and Mr. R. H. Wilenski , artist and art critic. Mr. Wilenski's ' The Modern Movement in Art', published in 1927, is accepted as a brilliant exposition of the modernist movement ; he is a past contributor to THE RADIO Times, and has recently contributed two articles on Twentieth Century Style to The Listener.
Mr. Newton, counsel this evening for the old school, is to cross-examine an art critic who has sympathies with the new one. The older generation will be interested to hear the expert champion the modern movement. It seems it does not matter from the modernist point of view what the picture is like, so long as the artist's intentions are original. But Mr. Newton, and the older generation, expect the picture to give pleasure of some kind. They are not concerned with the artist's intentions. Mr. Wilenski does not look at a picture and say, ' Do I like this?' He looks at it and says, ' What is this ? What sort of activity has produced it ? '

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
