: The Millionaire Magpie

The Burrell is a name which has haunted Glasgow for 30 years ever since Sir William Burrell presented his extraordinary art collection to the city. It's a collection of some 8,000 items, worth at a guess around £40-million. Today it is still stored in a secret warehouse somewhere in the west of Scotland awaiting the construction of a special new museum.
But who was Sir William Burrell? How did this Victorian Howard Hughes amass his vast fortune? And what made him the most obsessive art collector of them all in an age of large-scale collecting? Tonight, Magnus Magnusson pursues The Millionaire Magpie, with the help of: Lord Clark: He's the only man I've ever known who was like a miser in Balzac.' Edwin Mullins:
' Here we have a man who wanted to own the past.'
Professor William Watson:
' This is the most extraordinary collection.'

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.

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.
