: Thirty-Minute Theatre: Empty Bottles

by Robin Smyth
[Starring] John Ronane as Elvis-Boy, Reg Lye as Georgie, Tenniel Evans as Smith

Three broken-down men whose refuge is a derelict building and a bottle of meths find a ten shilling note. To them it could mean the beginning of a new life and the end of the old: some left-over clothes instead of more meths; a meat pie instead of meths; a good meal instead of meths...
The three of them, Elvis-Boy, Georgie, and Smith, are overwhelmed by the possibilities facing them now that they have to make the decision of their lives...

: Graham Sutherland

A profile of a world-famous British painter filmed on the occasion of Sutherland's Munich exhibition.
Graham Sutherland talks to his friend, the Italian writer, Giorgio Soavi.
A BBC/Bavarian Television Service co-production

"Why should I struggle to explain? Why should I have to bruise the chancy sensations of the process of the creative art of painting? It is all as impossible as explaining the smell of leaves or the smell of a rose..."
Happily, Graham Sutherland has overcome a good many of the difficulties of the creative artist when talking about his art. He talks with candour and self-knowledge about his work at a lively press conference in Munich, and to Giorgio Soavi in his own surroundings. The paintings and drawings, filmed in Wales, England, Germany, and France, as well as the places and themes Sutherland dwells on, illuminate the words of a remarkable man and artist. (Colour)

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.
