: Under the Helmet

An unfinished portrait of Alasdair Gray painter and writer of Glasgow
"I am a chorus in search of a tragedy, a raker of middens in the industrial North.
I am a genius in an obscure line of business. Try me a little.
I may have something you can use".
A BBC-tv documentary film

I first met the late Alasdair Gray ten years ago on New Year's Eve in Glasgow-which is about the best place and time to meet anyone. At that time we were both students of painting. Two years later we met Laurence Henson and Edward McConnell, two young film makers who have since formed their own company and earned a considerable reputation in the field of industrial documentaries.
Together we planned a film on Gray's work. Eight years later that film-to be shown tonight-has been made, in circumstances unforeseen almost a decade ago.
Many artists, unknown during their lifetime, suffer the ironic glory of posthumous recognition. Whether this will be the case with Gray remains to be seen. However, what is certain is that his name is almost unknown in contemporary art.
Much of Gray's work illustrates the Old Testament—the Creation, the Fall, Jonah: these images seem to have obsessed him. Another recurrent image is Glasgow itself; one continually finds recognisable landmarks in his work.

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.
