: Art at Any Price?: 4: Art and Patronage

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.

Who are the patrons now? The old relationship between artist and patron has broken down. The artist is freer now than he's ever been. But this new liberty brings its problems. Who is the artist working for today? And does anyone care?

: Chronicle: The Terrible Year

The Siege of Paris and the Commune 1870-1871
Written by Alistair Horne
Narrated by Marius Goring

A hundred years ago the bloodiest revolution in French history was finally crushed. Besieged first by Prussian armies under Bismarck, Parisians came near to starvation, eating rats from the gutters and eventually animals from the Zoo. Paris, the fount of western civilisation, was isolated for seven months when her only means of communication was by balloon or pigeon post.
Having endured the rigours of the siege, Parisians were then subjected to the horrors of civil war. The left-wing revolution of the Paris Commune was the climax to a Terrible Year.

Sian Phillips reads
The Walker-Through-Walls by MARCEL AYME
Dutilleul was a man with an extraordinary gift: he was able to walk through walls. Being also a modest man, he first used his talent only when his new boss provoked him. From then on, every wall was a challenge, bringing adventure, riches, love and finally disaster.

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.
