: Bruegel

Pieter Bruegel , the elder, died 400 years ago. He lived and worked in the Netherlands in the middle of the 16th century and was one of the great witnesses of his age. He described the lives of ordinary working men and women in town and country. In his paintings of religious subjects he placed biblical events in contemporary contexts and so described the facts of oppression and religious persecution. He showed realistic activity taken to fantastic extremes and described the fantastic in completely realistic terms. His terrifying vision of ' The Triumph of Death ' anticipated by three-and-a-half centuries the familiar landscapes of modem war

: Pot Black: BBC2 Knockout Snooker Competition

The Final

John Spencer (present world snooker champion) v.
Ray Reardon (former Welsh amateur snooker champion)

Both players have coped with top quality opposition to get to the final. Can Spencer establish his superiority in this TV snooker series as well as in the more formal snooker world, or has the underdog Reardon still got more surprises for us? The prize, the BBC2 Pot Black Trophy, will be presented by David Nixon.

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.
