: Architecture: 5: Planning

Patrick Abercrombie, F.R.I.B.A.
This evening Patrick Abercrombie, F.R.I.B.A., Professor of Town Planning at the Bartlett School of Architecture, University College, London, whose previous talk on town planning had to be postponed, will discuss this subject in detail, illustrating his points by means of models and photographs. Professor Abercrombie, who is a brother of Lascelles Abercrombie, is one of this country's most eminent pioneers of town planning. Recognised as one of the greatest authorities on the subject, he has been partly, or entirely, responsible for many publications dealing with it. Amongst these are 'East Kent Regional Planning Scheme' 'Sheffield Civic Survey 'Doncaster Regional Planning Scheme', 'The Preservation of Rural England', 'Bristol and Bath Regional Planning Scheme', and 'Cumbrian Regional Planning Scheme'.
'Dublin of the Future' will be remembered as one of his most interesting books. It was his design, in co-operation with his partner, for the replanning of this city, which won him first premium in an international competition. For a number of years he was Professor of Civic Design at Liverpool University, and in 1936 he was appointed Consultant Architect to the Department of Health for Scotland.

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.
