: ROME AT WINDSOR

Three talks by Arnold Noach
2—The ' Paper Museum' of Cassiano dal Pozzo Cassiano dal Pozzo was an example of what the Renaissance called the 'complete man.' Without being himself an artist or writer, he played a leading part in the intellectual life of Baroque Rome and of the European world of his day. Interested in plant and bird life, he was, however, best known for his collection of records of ancient Rome, to which Nicolas Poussin , Pietro Testa , and other artists of his day contributed drawings. A fragment of this ' paper museum' survives in the collection of architectural drawings in the Royal Library at Windsor Castle. For some years Mr. Noach has been cataloguing this collection.

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.
