in conversation with T. G. Rosenthal
Michael Ayrton first became known in the late 1940s as one of a group of ai lists closely interested in the English landscape tradition, in particular the paintings of Samuel Palmer. His later work-in several media-has been frequently concerned with a number of Greek myths—Daedatus and Icarus. The Sybil of Cumae. and the Minotaur —and in tonight's conversation he tries to define the reasons for this interest and to relate it to his view of the modern world.

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.
