Basil Taylor introduces the series of broadcasts on this current in twentieth-century art, to be given in the Third Programme during November and January
The spirit of anti-art, with Dadaism as its principal manifestation, has been distinguished from other radical tendencies by a concern to challenge and attack the foundations of modem culture and society. Mr. Taylor considers reasons for the emergence of this spirit and the significance of the revived interest in anti-art since the war.

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.
