Theywere a peaceful and spiritual people who hunted manatee and fed off the riches of coral reefs. They called on theirgods to help control the universe, and the unique wildlife of the region - dazzling hummingbirds and parrots, colourful reef fishes, huge marine turtles, sinister snakes and flying frogs -had a special significance forthem.

: American Visions: Streamlines and Breadlines

Continuing the series investigating the history of American art and architecture.

Robert Hughes focuses on America between the Wall Street Crash of 1929 and the eve of the Second World War, an age of streamlined design and skyscrapers.
Failed capitalism inspired some painters to create images of doomed cities, while others searched for "American values" in a nostalgic vision of the Midwest. In other circles, Americanism became a byword for all things culturally new and progressive.
Art deco symbolised a nation struggling out of depression and into prosperity. As Europe became embroiled in war in 1939, America was developing a Utopian vision of the future, but then came the bombing of Pearl Harbour.

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.
