: Canvas

looks again at some of the world's most famous paintings previously seen in the series First Eleven.'
2: And when did you last see your father? by W. F. Yeames
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.

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
