It covers Hockney's childhood in Bradford, his notoriety and success at the Royal Academy of Art and his first visits to California, and, above all, his thoughts on painting.
When the book first came out, David Hockney talked about it to Robert Robinson in an interview filmed in the artist's studio in London.

A series of 12 programmes Written and presented by Magnus Magnusson
10: The Wolf on the Fold
' The Assyrian came down like the wolf on the fold, and his cohorts were gleaming in purple and gold ' -Byron's image of the dreaded Assyrian hordes. Around 750 BC, this new super-power swooped on the lands to the west, smashing the kingdom of Israel and terrorising the southern kingdom of Judah. King Hezekiah of Judah built a tunnel under the walls of his capital, Jerusalem, to provide a secure water-supply for the ' The KINGS OF ASSYRIA HAVE
LAID WASTE THE NATIONS
AND THEIR LANDS'
• beleaguered citizens. The thwarted Assyrian army destroyed a neighbouring city - Lachish, commemorating their triumph in a series of graphic stone reliefs in their royal palace at Nineveh.
Tonight MAGNUS MAGNUSSON goes to Nineveh to examine the rise of Assyrian power.

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.
