: WHO IS ...

Walter Gropius Architect
A new series of profiles on the life and work of artists of international stature
Written and directed by ROGER GRAEF
At the start of his career Walter Gropius , unlike the other founders of modern architecture, was concerned not only with buildings but with society as a whole. What he sought was unity, right down to the smallest detail, and to this end set out to show that the arrival of modern technology was something for the artist to use and control, not something to run away from.
In 1919 he merged the two academies at Weimar, that of Arts and that of Crafts, and by combining form and function virtually invented industrial design. The new school, known as the Bauhaus, had, and still has, a deep effect on all aspects of design. In 1932 the Nazi rise to power drove Gropius out, first to Britain, then to
America where he still thrives as architect and teacher.

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

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.
