: The Kennedy Years

A conversation with Theodore Sorensen.
Many books are now being written by those who knew and worked with the late President Kennedy, some with slender material. The man who can speak with the most intimate knowledge is Theodore Sorensen, for twelve years Personal Assistant to Kennedy. In Kennedy's speeches and the quality of thought they expressed the Sorensen touch is evident. He saw the strains and triumphs of the White House days from the inside.
In this programme tonight he talks for the first time of his twelve years with President Kennedy.


Speaker: Theodore Sorensen
Producer: Phillip Whitehead

: Artists' Notebooks: 3: Vincent van Gogh

Written and produced by Michael Gill.
Three studies of artists who wrote, as well as painted, their own self-portraits

Vincent van Gogh's painting career occupied only the last ten years of his life. Largely self-taught, misunderstood, constantly harried by ill-health and poverty, his life embodies in an extreme form the isolation of the modern artist. He left more than 800 paintings, but only one was sold in his own lifetime.
(First shown on BBC-1)


Writer/Producer: Michael Gill
Narrator: Tony Church
Voice of van Gogh: Alan Dobie
Music composed and played by: Anthony Bowles

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.

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.
