: Greta Garbo as Marie Walewska

The first of this week's films starring Hollywood's great screen goddess in four of her most famous roles. Also starring
Charles Boyer as Napoleon
For Countess Marie Walewska , like many patriotic Poles, Napoleon Bonaparte was the knight in shining armour who would save them from the Cossacks. But the Emperor, when he visits Poland, is disinclined to chase Cossacks and much more interested in pursuing the Countess. The Polish nobles urge her to make 'the supreme sacrifice' to save her country, thus beginning one of history's great love stories.
Screenplay by SAMUEL HOFFENSTEIN SALKA VIERTEL and S. N. BEHRMAN based on the Polish novel
Pani Walewska by WACLAW GASIOROWSKI and a dramatisation by HELEN JEROME Produced by BERNARD II. HYMAN Directed by CLARENCE BROWN

: One Hundred Great Paintings

This week's theme: Grief Bacon (b 1909)
Three Studies for Figures at the Base of a Crucifixion at the Tate Gallery, London
This triptych painting was first shown in April 1945, when most peopfe felt optimistic about the prospect pf peace. Bacon's picture
. personified a howl of anger at a world so cruel and meaningless that man is reduced to the level of a gruesome accident.
The odious malformations of these creatures were, in fact, a portent. Four months later an' atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima. Some "of the victims were as dehumarised as the -wretches in Bacon's triptych.

: Imagined Worlds

The last of five personal accounts of recent changes in scientific ideas Programmed for Insight? Dr John H. Crook
The idea that mankind is the evolutionary descendant of other primates has provoked debate from Darwin onwards. In particular, the notion that our behaviour can be explained from the study of animals .seemed to overlook our unique capacity for self-awareness and conscious choice.
JOHN CROOK believes that the new ideas to come from ethology provide an evolutionary perspective for how these inner processes of the mind arose.

: Horizon

The Fatal Bargain
It's now almost a year since the outbreak of a terrifying new disease in Spain which has affected more than 17,000 people and killed nearly 300. Despite intense scientific research in Spain and other countries, the disease has remained a complete mystery. It is thought to have been caused by industrial oil which unscrupulous businessmen tried to pass off as olive oil. But tonight's programme reveals just how little is known about the oil and the disease it's supposed to have triggered. It's a story of confusion, panic, intrigue, bureaucratic bungling and scientific wrangling, and of the fear and helplessness felt by the victims of this appalling calamity.

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.
