Sunday Cinema: Andrei Rublev


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 second of four feature film portraits of European artists, starring Anatoly Solonitsin , Nikolai Sergeyev
Fifteenth-century icon painter Andrei Rublev , one of the world's great artists, lived through the most turbulent period of Russia's chaotic history. TARKOVSKY'S epic film shown tonight for the first time in Britain in its full-length, original version, traces his artistic development through his relationship with another great painter, Theophanes the Greek, in the context of feudal violence surrounding them. Unlike Theophanes, Rublev painted man as essentially good, with a tenderness untainted by sentimentality.

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.
