: Omnibus: Joseph Cornell: Worlds in a Box

The American artist and film-maker Joseph Cornell (1903-72) remains the dark horse of modern art, an enigmatic and reclusive cult figure who found fame through the so-called "Cornell Box". In a series of glass-fronted boxes he arranged a number of unrelated objects - everything from toys and photographs to driftwood and pebbles from the beach - to create a three-dimensional fantasy. One of his boxes was sold recently for nearly $500,000. This first TV documentary about Cornell assesses his life and work - with the help of admirers Tony Curtis and Susan Sontag - and paints an illuminating portrait of the hidden world of the man whose modest studio became a place of pilgrimage for the likes of Andy Warhol, John Lennon and Max Ernst. He lived in the basement of a house he shared with his mother and brother (a victim of cerebral palsy). Producer Robert McNab
Series editor Andrew Snell

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.
