: Egon Schiele

Introduced by Edwin Mullins
This Austrian painter died in the Spanish
'flu epidemic in 1918 at the age of 28. He had been to prison accused of pornography but the evidence was not enough to convict him. Though a disciple of the famous Art Nouveau artist Gustav Klimt, Schiele remained virtually unknown until 50 years after his death, when public opinion had changed sufficiently to accept SCHIELE'S honesty.
He described the darker side of sex, fear, frustration, anguish, obsessions with a terrible frankness. Yet he has also done many beautiful landscapes, which capture the countryside and villages with stunning accuracy as you will see in this film which won the Grand
Prix at Paris International Art Film Festival for 1976 and the ' Perla ' Grand Prix for the best documentary film 1976, at Milan.
The second of four programmes about European art and artists.

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.
