: Art at Any Price?: 1: Art and Reputation

Four films in which
Edwin Mullins looks at Art - the people who collect it the people who create it and the people who cash in
What gives a work of art its credit? How do you measure the quality of a Raphael or a Henry Moore? Who makes reputations in the art world? The critics? Dealers? The collectors themselves? And what does reputation mean to the artist himself?

: The Philpott File The Entertainers

A series of three film reports by Trevor Philpott
1: What do you expect, elephants? These days, with spacemen, cowboys, and secret agents crowding into the sitting-room every night, the travelling circus fights against the odds. But there are still some youngsters to whom it's the most exciting world of all.
This film features two oddly paired young men who decided to build their own circus and take it on the road. It's a story of a new-born road show struggling to stay alive on faith, stubbornness and sweat. It may not be the Greatest Show on Earth-but it's a sort of miracle all the same.
Produced by TREVOR PHILPOTT (Cover story: page 13)
(Another entertainer, May Ronaldson, recalls travelling the fairgrounds in Times Remembered: Thursday 8.0 pm)

T. P. McKenna reads First Confession by FRANK O'CONNOR
It only stood to reason that a lad confessing for the first time would have more to tell than people that went every week. The crimes of a lifetime, as the priest said.
' Father,' I said, feeling I might as well get it all off my chest at once, ' I had it all arranged to kill my grandmother.'
Produced by WILL WYATT

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.
