5.35 ' What to see these holidays': W. R. Dalzell takes you round the French Exhibition at Burlington House
One of the most remarkable art exhibitions in recent years is now at the Royal Academy. Its subject is Landscape in French Art, and although some of the pictures are seascapes or portraits with landscape backgrounds, it does show how French artists have made use of the open-air (as distinct from interior) settings from the late sixteenth century to about the year 1900. Here are many superb examples of the work of Claude, Poussin, Watteau, Corot, and the Impressionists never before seen in this country, as well as drawings, engravings, and a magnificent series of tapestries with landscape backgrounds.

: ROYAL ENCOUNTERS

by Compton Mackenzie
When he was a small boy of eight making honey pots of the sand ' Compton Mackenzie met the Empress of Austria on the beach at Cromer. A little later on —probably two years later-he saw ' a lady in a mushroom-shaped hat with a veil round it ' waiting in her carriage while a footman removed a stone from the horse's shoe. He bowed many times, returning the bows of Queen Victoria which he thought were specially addressed to him. These are two of the Royal encounters which Compton Mackenzie describes in this talk.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
