: London Galleries

A selection of pictures from London galleries, and a discussion between Serge Chermayeff and John Piper on "The Picture in the Modern Home".

John Piper, a staunch believer in English art, is thirty-three years of age. He studied law for some time and then, like Matisse, he abandoned that profession to paint. After a spell at the Royal College of Art, he spent a good deal of time studying interiors of churches and painting landscapes. He now works, however, as an abstract painter entirely.
In order to study early English art he has visited remote parts of the country with his camera for photographs of sculpture, many of which have appeared in the Architectural Review. One of his beliefs is that the great hope of painters today is to work with architects.
In today's broadcast he will discuss the possibilities of this with Serge Chermayeff, the architect (with Erich Mendelsohn) of the new De La Warr Pavilion at Bexhill, and also a designer of several studios at Broadcasting House.
'Sound' listeners will remember that he broadcast with Professor Hilton in 1935 on painting and drawing in the home.

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.
