The Greatest Living Painter
To mark the artist's 90th birthday year this film examines the life and work of Willem de Kooning , considered by some to be the world's greatest living painter. De Kooning was diagnosed in 1988 as having Alzheimer's disease, and a year later he was declared legally incompetent. Despite his illness he continued to paint; this laterwork has been the subject of controversy. While many consider it to be his finest, others feel that demand forthese paintings is fuelled by their scarcity, not quality. Narrated by Matthew Collings , this updated version of a 1991 Late Show special is timed to coincide with a major exhibition of de Kooning's paintings at London's Tate Gallery.

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.
