Renoir, is that You?
Luiz Antonio Gasparetto is a young South American. He cannot paint - not until up to 30 spirits of dead artists move him. And then he paints in the styles of great masters at the rate of 20 an hour. GASPARETTO is convinced that his remarkable gift, seen here before the cameras for the first time, comes from the spirit world. Does it? Experts discuss his extraordinary case with JAMES HOGG.

: The Hong Kong Beat

Nine documentary programmes which take a close look at the world's most controversial police force in action.
4: The Streets of Hong Kong
The streets are dangerous, and their moods are unpredictable. For overcrowding and humidity make tempers volatile. INSPECTOR BROWN, who deals with Hong Kong's 999 calls, has always to adapt quickly to a rapidly changing scene. For there are no action replays on these streets. He has to decide there and then whether the bomb-call is a hoax, whether to use cs gas against the violently insane man, and whether to risk a charge of indecent assault by man-handling the girl. These are everyday problems. But Brown also has a longer-term problem of his own. He's under investigation by the Colony's anti-corruption commission, and if he's found guilty, it will mean his ruin.

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.
