Ways of Seeing

In contrast to the more expansive, and expensive. range of Kenneth Clark 's history of Civilisation, John Berger 's series from 1972 re-examined the ways we look at painting and photography, manipulated by the medium and the context in which they are seen. The impact of the more modest series was arguably as influential as that of Civilisation. Ways of Seeing still stands as a provocative and witty warning to the viewer to beware. In this first programme, John Berger suggests that art is no longer a constant: photographic reproduction has changed the way we see paintings from the past. He describes how television can manipulate our responses to an image by the use of words or music. Produced by MICHAEL DIBB (R)

An oil painting was once a unique object; but now with photographic copying it can be seen anywhere - in books or magazines, on postcards or television.
Tonight, writer and critic John Berger suggests that the fact of photography has changed the way we see the art of the past and that a painting's impact depends on the conditions in which it is seen. He also demonstrates how its meaning can be manipulated either by words or music.

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.
