The Listener was a weekly magazine established by the BBC in 1929 under its director-general, Lord Reith. It was developed as the medium for reproducing broadcast talks, initially on radio, but in later years television as well. It developed a reputation for outstanding writing, featuring contributions from the major writers, artists, social commentators and thinkers of the twentieth century and provides an invaluable resource for those researching the critical reception of visual arts and wider areas of culture from politics to science, and how the wider public responded to them, in the twentieth century.
