Artists' Journeys: Helen Chadwick on Frida Kahlo


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.
Six films for the Commissions and Collaborations season in which a contemporary artist visits places which inspired an artist from the past.
The Mexican artist Frida Kahlo was the first woman to paint an inner world of love, pain and rejection.
Thirty-eight years after her death, her paintings have found a huge audience and a cult following. Hollywood is to film her life story, with Madonna tipped to play the lead. In this film, British artist Helen Chadwick goes to Mexico to follow up her fascination with Frida, and to untangle the web of intrigue and myth that has been spun around her.

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.
