: Omnibus: Jean Renoir: 1: From La Belle Epoque to World War II

Born 100 years ago, Jean Renoir is considered by many the greatest of film directors. Omnibus presents a two-part investigation of Renoir's life and career, coinciding with a short season of his films on BBC2.

The son of Impressionist painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Jean's career began in the silent era but his most acclaimed films date from the 1930s.
His films are said to reflect his father's love of nature and deep humanity, and have long been an inspiration to other directors as well as audiences.
Directors Bernardo Bertolucci, Peter Bogdanovich and Claude Chabrol are among those interviewed.
Director David Thompson; Series editor Nigel Williams.
La Regle du Jeu will be shown next Saturday and Boudu Saved from Drowning next Sunday; Part 2 of Omnibus next Tuesday

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.
