: Omnibus AvigdorArikha

Whether it is a single tomato or a portrait of the Queen Mother, Arikha's figurative works have gained the admiration of his contemporaries and the approval of many art critics. Both his life and career have been full of dramatic changes: he spent his early years in Nazi concentration camps and then grew up on a kibbutz in Israel. He first became known as an abstract painter, then he concentrated on drawing before arriving at his current style of "painting from life".
Omnibus travels with him to
New York for an exhibition of his work, and to Israel - which he still finds a major source of inspiration. Arikha is also seen at work on a portrait in his Paris studio, talking to photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson and recalling his friend and mentor Samuel Beckett.

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.
