: Outlook for Friday: Painting in England 1700-1850: 11: Why no English Raphael?

Characteristic forms of English art discussed by Basil Taylor.

English painting in the eighteenth century produced no master by European standards of religious art or 'history painting'. Commissions for works in the Grand Manner were seldom forthcoming, but ambition was not lacking among the artists themselves.

: Wheelbase: Who's Beating the Beetle?

Gordon Wilkins covers the world of motoring.

The Volkswagen factory at Wolfsburg-the biggest single car plant in the world-has had to shorten the working week for its 100,000 labour force for the first time since the war. Exports of 'the beetle' are higher than ever, but over the past year VW have sold 30,000 fewer cars at home, and unsold stocks are piling up. In this Wheelbase film report from Wolfsburg, VW Chairman Professor Heinz Nordhoff surveys West Germany's automobile slump, and weighs up future prospects for the thirty-year-old people's car.

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.

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