: Snowdon On Camera

The second of two programmes
What's a photograph worth? Is it worth more than the paper its printed on? ' Taking a photograph,' says Snowdon, ' is freezing a moment to impart an emotion in the simplest way possible.' Nevertheless vast amounts of money are being made by agents, gallery owners and camera manufacturers. In this programme he talks to people who value photographs much higher than the small amount of money the paper costs: a newspaper picture editor, the head of a syndication agency, American collectors, auctioneers and gallery owners and the Californian photographer Ansel Adams , whose works are now valued in millions of pounds. He asks experts Dr Roy Strong and Diana Vreeland if the current boom in the price of ' Art' photographs perhaps has gone too far.

Robert Aldrich 's starkly realistic picture of the brutalities of war shows the devastating effect of one man's cowardice in battle. Captain Cooney's failure of nerve has already cost the lives of a number of men but his corrupt, cynical Colonel will not replace him. When Cooney's company is ordered back into battle, Lieutenant Costa vows to kill him if Cooney needlessly endangers the life of one more man ...

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.
