Talk by Arnold Noach
The clash between unregenerate Rococo and austere Louis-Seize is portrayed in a little-known novel by the French eighteenth-century architect Jean-François Blondel, which shows the Man of Taste wooed by two lady loves. Arnold Noach talks about the novel and about L'Education des Riches, a genre picture of the same period at present on view in London at the Royal Academy.

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.
