Leonora Carrington and the House of Fear
Leonora Carrington was an English debutante who, before the war, ran away to Paris to join the Surrealists. No one was quite sure what became of her after that. Then three years ago her short stories were published here for the first time, and last year a major exhibition of her paintings toured England after opening at the Serpentine Gallery in London. The strange and sometimes disturbing world of Carrington's imagination caught the interest of both public and critics, but despite this success, Leonora didn't return to England. This was characteristic: for 75 years she had refused to do what was expected of her.
This film tells the story of her journey from a gothic mansion in Lancashire, to Paris at the height of the surrealist movement, into a lunatic asylum in Spain, and finally to Mexico City.

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.
