Why Beauty Matters

The Modern Beauty season continues with Roger Scruton's provocative essay on the importance of beauty, both in the arts and our lives. The philosopher wants its traditional role 'restored', arguing that 20th-century artists, architects and musicians have turned their backs on beauty, creating a cult of ugliness and leading us into a spiritual vacuum.
The Modern Beauty season continues on Monday with School of Saatchi at 9pm

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.
