A course in drawing and observation
Look at the object carefully. How tall is it and how wider What can we find in the background to help us describe that curve at the topr
Ian Simpson invites you to join the studio group and make your own drawing
'I'm not talented.' 'I haven'the time.' 'I've tried but when people see the result they say " what's that? " '
Ask your friends if they'd like to draw and these are some of the replies you'll get. But the 'no-talent ' claim is often an excuse for laziness-and surely most of us can find the odd ten minutes a day for something we enjoy?
Can anyone learn to draw from the television screen? It depends on what they want to achieve and how enthusiastic they are. No one is likely to become another Rembrandt, but if you've ever wondered how and where to start, Eyeline provides the answer.
These ten programmes tackle the basic problems that are found in all drawing whatever the subject. They offer the viewer the chance to become part of a studio group and have a go at translating what they see on the screen into lines on paper. Only pencil and paper are needed; there's no age limit, or special skill required.
No easy road to success is offered. Instead you are encouraged to express yourself with results that we hope will be pleasing and satisfying.

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.
