A small group of literary folk and their artistic friends who. during the earlier part of this century met regularly in each other's houses and when parted, however fteeHngly. wrote to each other, has retained a curiously strong hold on the imagination of the culturally inclined. A flourishing industry has grown up around their memory. Books by them have been far outnumbered by books about them, but they are celebrated, it might be supposed, as much for their style of living as for their creative skills. What is the allure of the Bloomsbury Group? Is their literary, artistic and historical significance overrated? Is the glamour of their social life a myth? Frances Donnelly asks the questions and the answers are supplied by Quentin Bell.

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.
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.
