! A reconstruction * by G. W. Ireland
On Tuesday evenings for more than a quarter of a century there gathered m the flat of Stephane Maliarme a group of young writers and artists of the day: many of them were subsequently to rival in fame the Master himself. They discussed the problems of artistic theory and practice they had in common. This reconstruction is of an imaginary evening in the early 1890s.

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.
