: J. M. W. Turner, 1775-1851

The Rebel Angel
'Art takes after truth in vain.' So said Britain's greatest painter. He gave his work to the nation so that it could be judged as a whole -not only the famous paintings which he exhibited at the Royal Academy or sold to his clients, but also the thousands of sketches and watercolours which he had kept to himself.
On the eve of the bi-centenary of his birth, this film celebrates the diversity of his talents by bringing together works great and small, which illustrate the perception of one of the keenest pair of eyes in Europe. Turner surveyed the awe-inspiring wonders of European landscape and saw in every image he made both a reflection of his soul and omens of human destiny. It was his hope that posterity would recognise his genius. The immense success of the Turner exhibition at the Royal Academy attended by nearly half-a-million people suggests it has.

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.

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