Naum Gabo
Construction in space
At 82, Gabo is the leading ' constructivist' sculptor alive today. Born in Russia in 1890 and now living in America, he was the originator of the famous ' Realistic Manifesto,' a key document in the history of modern art and as true today as when it was written in 1922. In this film Gabo speaks as an eye-witness of the birth of modern art in Germany where he studied, and in his native Russia during the years of the Revolution. He also explains, in words and images of great clarity and power, the philosophy of his own work, from the 80-ft-high sculpture in the heart of Rotterdam to his more recent project, a fountain for a site in London.

: A Matter of Discipline: The Army: Do it - then complain

The first of four films that show what happens when human beings are brought face to face with a code to which they must conform.
Six recruits arrive at the Depot of an Infantry Division to begin 14 weeks' basic training. In that 14 weeks, officers and NCOs have to instil soldierly habits into the men: so condition them that obedience to a word of command becomes instinctive - even if that word of command is 'Kill.'

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.
