Serge Chermayeff, the joint architect of the Bexhill Pavilion, will discuss the problems with which architecture is faced today, both in relation to town planning and to rural economy and amenities. The talk will be illustrated by models
Serge Chermayeff, who is to introduce this new series today, began life as a journalist. In 1922 he went to Germany to study architecture and afterwards visited the Argentine and Paris. But it was in London that he actually commenced to practise, and his name is now principally associated with his work for Broadcasting House, the Cambridge Theatre, and the new pavilion at Bexhill.
It is more than ten years since Yvonne Arnaud charmed London and New York as Mrs. Pepys in the historical comedy by J.B. Fagan, the playwright who died in 1933. She played this part originally at the Queen's in 1926, with Edmund Gwenn as Samuel Pepys, and later in a revival in 1931 at the Globe.
"And so to Bed" was a footnote that Samuel Pepys used when he had completed each diary entry at the end of the day.
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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
