: Omnibus: The Performers

A film about the great Spanish painter Francisco Goya 1746-1828
With Esperanza Malkin, Vallentin Conde
and the voice of Colin Blakely as Goya

Goya's etchings suggest the theme of a performance where the actors' roles change from day to day, selected by a force beyond their control. This film, made during a fiesta in modern-day Spain, tells Goya's story - part of it fact, part fiction, rumour, and contradiction.
The violence, the politics, the sexuality in his work, the ambiguities in his own personality, are all part of this Masquerade.

Film Cameraman: Peter Sargent
Film Editor: Paul Humfress
Director: Leslie Megahey
Goya (voice): Colin Blakely

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
