The Bull in Winter - the Last Years of Pablo Picasso
'The meaningless scribbling of a frenetic old man in the antechamber of death' was how the writer and collector
Douglas Cooper described the late work of Pablo Picasso. The artist himself had been hidden away for years behind the walls of his well-guarded villa, and, when he died aged 91 in 1973 the critical battle continued over the paintings he'd produced in the last two decades of his life. Cooper had been a personal friend - other critics were even less restrained - they wrote of 'pornography, infantilism, senility'. Gradually, the inventiveness of the later works began to be recognised, and now, 15 years on, make up your own minds with the opening at the Tate of an exhibition devoted to the 'late Picasso'. Omnibus looks at these controversial works and hears from the family and close friends of the great artist.

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

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.
