The World of Women: Painting and Pottery


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.
Dame Laura Knight, D.B.E., R.A., LL.D.

"You will be elected to the Royal Academy one day". That is what Dame Laura Knight's mother said to her when she was only a few years old. The prophecy was fulfilled; in 1927 she was made an A.R.A. and in 1936 an R.A. Just before she was married to Harold Knight her first varnishing ticket came from the Royal Academy for a picture called "Mother and Child", which she painted at Staithes. She is now in the first rank of English artists, famous particularly for her fine studies of circus life.
Her talk today will be illustrated with several of her pictures, including "The Ballet", which was one of the attractions of last year's Academy Exhibition. Some of the special pottery which she has designed for the Coronation will also be shown.


Presenter: Dame Laura Knight

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.
