The front door of the hollow tree where Toad was sleeping faced eastwards, so he was called early. Sitting up, he rubbed his eyes and wondered for a moment where he was; then, with a leap of the heart, remembered everything-his escape, disguised as a washer-woman, his flight, his pursuit; remembered, best thing of all, that he was free!

: THE PASSION FOR FACES

by David Piper
Next to the art of water colours, the painting of portraits has long been the most characteristically English form of artistic expression. Even if in the past some of the painters were distinguished foreigners, their patrons were invariably English gentlemen whose portraits, together with those of their dogs, horses, children, country houses, and wives, have all contributed to the growth of this rich and unique artistic tradition.
The National Portrait Gallery in London, which houses many of the best or most interesting examples of English portrait painting, is now celebrating its first centenary. David Piper, Assistant Keeper of the Gallery, speaks about ' truth ' and ' untruth ' in portraits and asks what use the genuine portrait is to the historian.

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.
