: MILAN TRIENNALE

The Threat of Leisure by JOSEPH RYKWERT
Last month the thirteenth Triennale opened in Milan devoted to the theme of Free Time—The Constructive Use of Leisure. This exhibition, by tradition the outstanding international fair in the field of design and architecture, has this year been used as an instrument for arousing public feeling about the use of leisure. Joseph Rykwert , Librarian at the Royal College of Art, who was in Milan on the eve of the Triennale's opening, asks whether this polemical intention is justifiable in an exhibition of this nature.

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.
