: The New Masters

Marc Chagall , one of the great individuals of 20th-century painting, is now 84. His unique talent for expressing the feeling of the heart in images of poetic power is matched by an unrivalled command of colour.
This film, subtitled Head Over Heels, is set in and around the artist's studio in St Paul de Vence in France. It tells the story of a man, born in a small Jewish community in Tsarist Russia, who has lived through two World' Wars, a Revolution and the rebirth of the Jewish Nation itself. CHAGALL talks of both the past and future and is seen absorbed in the painting of a large picture which symbolises his love of all the charms of life. Narrator ROBERT CUSHMAN
Film cameraman ERIC DEEMING Film editor PETER WEST Written and produced by JOHN READ

Ted Swan is the night superintendent at a mental hospital where his duties include keeping an eye on a community of patients who govern themselves. Swan's world is a cosy one: secure job, desirable wife-a shade too desirable perhaps. And tonight the smashing of a hospital window starts a train of events he cannot control.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
