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.

(The recorded broadcast of Feb. 28)
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.
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.
