Canvas looks again at some of the world's most famous paintings previously seen in the series 'First Eleven.'
Yeames's version of a dramatic Civil War incident has perhaps the unenviable distinction of being the most parodied of English paintings. The very title has become a joke. For years the canvas was hidden away in the basement of the Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool, and although it's now back on show it's possibly regarded more as a curiosity than as a great painting.
Roy Strong, Director of the National Portrait Gallery, discovers a version of Yeames's painting in an unexpected setting and explodes at least one of the myths that contributed to its popularity.
with Percy Thrower from Crathes Castle, Kincardineshire (by arrangement with the National Trust for Scotland)
The gardens of this great 16th-century Jacobean house on Deeside were laid out in the 18th century as a complex of seven separate gardens all different in character. In this second visit Percy Thrower concentrates on three more of them.
starring Ronnie Barker and Ronnie Corbett
with New World, Tina Charles and Madeline Smith as Henrietta
Madeline Smith is not the kind of girl a man would look at twice in the street. He would look three or four times and then run round the block so he would pass her again. Then swoon. (Anon)
Arrangements and orchestra directed by:
Starring Geraldine Chaplin, Jose Luis Lopez Vazquez, Alfredo Mayo
Charles Chaplin's daughter Geraldine plays both roles in this modern tragedy about a middle-aged doctor who tries to change his shy nurse into the ideal woman of his dreams.
Director Carlos Saura, whose films Los Golfos and La Caza have received critical acclaim throughout the world, is virtually unknown in Britain. Tonight's premiere presentation should help to establish his reputation here.

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.
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.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
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.
