Venus de Milo

Synopsis

We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
The most famous statue in the world, dug up in a field in 1820. For over a century she's been the symbol of feminine perfection - this mutilated giantess with a figure measure 43-37-47. One contemporary report says that she was found intact. So what happened to her arms? What did she look like before her amputation? Yvonne Mitchell, the actress and writer, visits the Louvre in Paris and tries to piece together the many contradictions that make up the story of the Venus de Milo.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
