Dean of Emmanuel College Cambridge and NINIAN SMART
H. G. Wood Professor in the Department of Theology at Birmingham University

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.
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

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
