: * THE MISSING MOTEL t

by REYNER BANHAM
One of the major exhibitions of the current summer season in New York is Modern Architecture USA, at the Museum of Modern Art.
Reyner Banham considers not only the content of the show but what is significantly missing from it-several twentieth-century building types of purely American extraction. and the whole idiom of ' pop ' architecture which, one recent writer has claimed, ' is already the staple design of the American landscape outside of the oldest parts of the oldest cities.

: NO WHY

by John Whiting
This short play is stark, horrifying, and perhaps somewhat enigmatic if taken too literally. But if we look at it as an image, a metaphor, it can also be seen as very moving personal statement about the position of the artist. who must be what he is regardless of how his critics want him to be. That is the meaning of the title of the Play, which derives from an epigram by the seventeenth-century German mystic. Angelus Silesius:
Die ROS' ist ohn' Warum, sie blühet weil sie blühet,
Sie acht'nirht ihrer selbst, fragt nicht, ob man sie siehet
The Rose it knows no why-it grows because it grows,
Heedless of Self. without concern who sees it or who knows

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.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
