Between them, John Drewe and John Myatt produced 200 counterfeit paintings using emulsion mixed with lubricant, and gave them a false history by doctoring catalogue entries in art archives. Their machinations were only foiled by accident in a police station in 1995. This film tells the story of an ingenious crime.
In June 1998 James Byrd, an African-American, was chained to the back of a truck and dragged three miles to his death. Three men from Jasper, Texas, were charged with this brutal crime, and this film follows reaction to the trials in 1999 from the viewpoint of both black and white residents of the town.
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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
