Degas: the Old Man Mad about Art
It was always said that Hilaire Germain Edgar Degas , the great impressionist painter, became a hermit forthe last 20 or 30 years of his life and that his great days as an artist were over. In n fact, he was obsessively painting the female figure, creating some of the most original and dazzling pictures of his life, pictures that profoundly influenced the art of the 20th century.
On the eve of a major exhibition of late works by Degas at London's
National Gallery, Richard Kendall , who put togetherthe exhibition, discusses the late flowering of Degas's talent with artists including Howard Hodgkin and Paula Rego , and explores the influence of his work on, among others, Piccasso and Matisse. Last in the series.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
