: Full House

A live entertainment for Saturday, presenting a mixture of music, plays, poetry, prose, comedy, films, the visual arts - and a few surprises...
Introduced by Joe Melia with a little help from Eric Idle, Henry Woolf and from the studio audience.
Among the main events are:
London's Longest Picture
Sidney Nolan, the Australian painter, sees his 150-ft-long picture hung for the very first time in the Full House studio.
(In Omnibus tomorrow at 10.20 pm - not Northern Ireland transmitters - Sidney Nolan revisits Australia)
The London Saxophone Quartet
A group of musicians who are making a name for themselves with a repertoire and style that is unfamiliar in this country. They will play a light and witty quartet by Jean Francaix (b 1912)
What Shall We Do Next?
A diversion by John Bowen
with Michael Craig, Barbara Leigh-Hunt, Brian Deacon, Cherith Mellor
'What shall we do next?' 'What do you want to do?' 'I don't know, what do you want to do?' 'I don't mind really. Anything. It doesn't matter to me.'
10.0 Roxy Music
Reviving the music of the 1950s and contributing some of their own - vocal and electronic.
The Mona Lisa in 3-D
The Dutch artist, Saskia de Boer, makes figures of famous people from foam rubber. There are Marilyn Monroes, Marlene Dietrichs, Botticelli Primaveras and Mona Lisas galore. She is one of the artists described in Udo Kultermann's book New Realism, which has just been published.
Rather than paint a subject directly, the New Realist works from a photograph, which is already a flat, frozen form, free of emotional complications. Photography, often considered the enemy of painting, here becomes its servant.
10.45 Dan Jacobson
The South African writer and critic, winner of the Llewelyn Rhys Memorial Prize and the Somerset Maugham Award: tonight he reads, and talks about, a story of his that deals with his childhood in South Africa.
Plus sketches by Eric Idle, cartoon films... and whatever or whoever else turns up.

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.
