: The Eye of the Artist: 8: Looking at Westminster

Viewers are invited to consider a plan for redesigning the Westminster Precinct, in which the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, and other notable buildings could be isolated from traffic congestion and thus gain quietness and beauty.
This plan, put forward by the Architectural Review, is described by the Research Editor, Leo de Syllas, A.R.I.B.A., with the help of models, film, and photographs.
In the studio a distinguished company, including the Dean of Westminster, the Acting Headmaster of Westminster School, and the Librarian of the House of Commons, comment on the scheme, which will be on exhibition at the Tate Gallery from March 9, and afterwards in the library of the House of Commons. The plan has been suggested as the National War Memorial.


Presenter: Leo de Syllas
Producer: Mary Adams

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
