Talk by David Piper
The latest volume to appear in the Oxford History of English Art is English Art, 1625-1714, by M. Whinney and 0. Millar. The book's central problem is ' the English reaction to the full baroque style of the Continent.' The speaker discusses this theme -with special reference to the unusual opportunity of seeing a full selection of the painting of the period now made available by the exhibition of British Portraits at the Royal Academy.
followed by an Interlude at J.15

First of two talks by J. B. Ward Perkins
Director of the British School at Rome
Little attempt has been made by historians of architecture to consider classical buildings in terms of the materials and methods used in their construction. In his first talk the speaker examines the change that came over Roman architecture between about A.D. 60 and A.D. 130 with the increasingly assured use of Roman concrete. ' What in effect had been achieved during this astonishingly short period was nothing less than the turning inside out of the traditional Greek idea of architecture.'

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.
