: * Omnibus A Requiem for Modigliani

by DEREK MARLOWE starring
Peter McEnery as Modigliani
Modigliani died in 1920 at 35, of drink, drugs, malnutrition, and tuberculosis. The true cause of death was neglect and frustration. Desperately wanting recognition, this extraordinarily talented Jewish-Italian painter in his lifetime couldn'give away his pictures. Today they are worth hundreds of thousands of pounds. Tonight's film dramatically re-creates the last phase of Modi's stormy life: the passionate affair with Beatrice Hastings , and his deeply moving love for Jeanne Hebuterne with its tragic consequence.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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 obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

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.
