: Omnibus

About Face
From the first cave man who drew his image on the wall to today's provocative art, About Face provides a challenging history of the self portrait.
The programme coincides with Face to Face, an exhibition of self-portraits at the Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool. Its lush Victorian interior provides the opulent settingfor paintings by artists such as Durer, Rembrandt,
Michelangelo, Stubbs and Hogarth. In contrast, Not Self Portrait is an exhibition of contemporary artists' work held at the spartan, white-walled Karsten Shubert Gallery and contains pieces by current-day luminaries such as Mark Quinn , Gilbert and George, and French performance artist Orlan, who undergoes cosmetic surgery without anaesthetic - all for the sake of art.
Omnibus examines and contrasts many of the paintings included in the exhibitions and finds some striking connections. The programme also asks whetherthe continual updating of the self-portrait masks the fact that it is, in fact, an outmoded genre, or does it still have potential for the future.

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.
