For Sixth Forms: Artists' Notebooks: 1: Leonardo da Vinci


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.
Written by John Broadbent and Michael Gill.
King Francis I of France said he 'believed no other man had been born into the world who knew so much as Leonardo'. Painter, sculptor, and engineer, Leonardo contributed to many branches of learning. This film attempts to show something of the range of his activity and thought, by drawing on his own words and sketches as well as paintings.

BBC One London, 2 November 1964 11.30

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.
