Fourth of a five-part series of films illustrating the relationship between culture and the natural environment, presented by the historian and author Simon Schama.
Seas. From the village of Cullercoats on the Northumbrian coast to the warmerwaters of the Caribbean,
Schama explores the ways in which the sea has fired the imagination of writers, painters and explorers.
When American painter
Winslow Homerwent to Cullercoats in 1881, accordingto Schama, he was transformed from a straightforward painterto "the most extraordinary seascapist of the century, who understood the terror as well as the sublimity of the ocean swell". From Northumbria, Homertravelled to the Caribbean, where he discovered a more benign kind of sea. The art of Venice in the time of Titian, Tintoretto and Veronese was inspired both by the sea, constantly threateningthe city's survival, and the colourful cargoes arrivingfrom the East.

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.
