: Meetings of Minds

3/3. Fourth International Congress of Modern Architects - -Marseille and Athens 1933.
In July 1933, Le Corbusier and 90 other delegates boarded a boat in Marseille. Architects, engineers, writers and artists from 18 countries spent the next 15 days, on board and in Athens, discussing ideas for the city of the future. Though they didn't know it, the delegates were creating a blueprint for the rebuilding of Europe's cities, about to be destroyed by the Second World War. Today many argue that the Utopian ideas that came to dominate architecture after the 1933 Congress have led to misery and social breakdown for the inhabitants of those new towns and buildings. Frances Stonor Saunders explores how this meeting in 1933 changed the way people live today and how, as cities continue to expand, it will go on to influence the way they live in the future.

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.
