A film about an artist and about an obsession.
'It was a dream of mine that somehow, if it were possible, I would love to make a film with Leonardo as a sort of focal plane to show through Leonardo's drawings, through his art work and through his statements about art, how art of that kind is always relevant to any age.'
English composer
Edward Cowie has for years been fascinated by the phenomenon of Leonardo, the ultimate Renaissance man, and this film is an expression of that fascination.
Cowie's orchestral work
Leonardo is the basis for a musical and pictorial journey through Leonardo's work, exploring not just his paintings but his scientific experiments and his prophecies which took him so close to the contemporary world.

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.
