Summer Review


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 last of seven programmes in which Summer Review offers a repeat of the best work done in Review during the past season.
Anthony Rossiter paints and writes in a Somerset farmhouse. His inspiration is the beauty of the countryside and the simple things around him. But there is a darker side, when his world becomes a ' landscape of fear,' and he swings uncontrollably from an intense joy and vision to periods of despair and madness: his autobiography is called The Pendulum. In this film he retraces some of his experiences and describes their impact on his work. Directed by LESLIE MEGAHEY
W. H. Auden reads three of his own poems.
The Elizabethan Image
Portraits of any age reveal something of the sitters' own moods and attitudes.
To a selection of paintings from the highly successful exhibition held earlier this year at the Tate Gallery, Dr Roy Strong , Director of the National Portrait Gallery, added another dimension: the comments of the Elizabethans themselves.

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.
