Five broadcasts on European painting by Eric Newton
Our enjoyment of pictures is too often hampered by the jargon of the art critics. Semi-technical terms like' expressionism ' and ' cubism — even * realism ' or ' romanticism '-are often used so imprecisely that they confuse where they should illuminate. To clear up this confusion is one of Mr. Newton's aims in this series: to give more precise meaning to such terms; to show by illustration and example how a clearer understanding of the ' -isms' and their relationship to each other can contribute greatly to our pleasure in art.
Final talk, next Wednesday: Realism
These talks are being printed in ' The Listener '
An illustrated pamphlet price 2s. 6d. (containing fifty-three reproductions, six in colour) may be obtained through news-agents and booksellers, or post free from [address removed] (Crossed postal orders, please—not stamps.)

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.
