: Born 1900

Roland Penrose
At 22 SIR ROLAND PENROSE ran away to Paris to paint; there he became a close friend of the artists of the time - Ernst, Moore, Braque and Pablo Picasso , whose biography he has written. He comes from a strict Quaker background but bears no marks of the puritan. Now he is President of the Institute of Contemporary Arts (which he helped to found in the 1930s). He has been responsible during his lifetime for many of the major art exhibitions we have enjoyed in this country. We see him working on the recent Man Ray exhibition in London and hear him talk of his life, of art and of artists with the enthusiasm born of great experience and love.

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.
