Introduced by Melvyn Bragg The Mammoth in the lee A film about Russian art presented by Edwin Mullins
The 1917 Revolution did not only turn the political world upside down. The artists of revolutionary Russia produced a visual art that matched the excitement of the times. Painters like Kandinsky and Malevich, sculptors like Gabo and Pevsner explored a brilliant new world of abstraction. Architects designed fantastic buildings and monuments fit for a revolutionary people.
EDWIN MULLINS shows how these brilliant manifestations of the Russian visual genius emerged from what had been a backward and isolated country. He talks to Naum Gabo, the sculptor, who was in Russia after the revolution, and relates what happened to the artists when the ideals of the revolution began to fade.

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.
