The ENGLISH STRING QUARTET Last of three programmes including his six Quarteta Op. 60


Nearly thirty years ago Le Corbusier set down (in When the Cathedrals Were White) his deep concern for the United States and his belief that. in spite of all the ' inhuman jazz,' it would be the first to achieve an architecture to honour modern life. Yet it is only this year that he completed a commission there.
Fello Atkinson reflects on this building-the Carpenter Center at Harvard-and on the Corbusier exhibition now at the Museum of Modern Art. Do they mark an end to the long estrangement between a great architect and what he called the country of timid people ' ? Second broadcast

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.
