: One Hundred Great Paintings

A selection of some of the world's great paintings
This week's theme: Gardens Bosch (c 1450-1516)
The Garden of Earthly Delights (The Prado, Madrid)
His contemporaries found it hard to believe that one mind could summon up such a proliferation of fantastic creatures. It is not difficult to see why Bosch has excited great interest in our time: his imagery seems to come straight from the subconscious, just right for the tortured century that invented psychoanalysis. Written and presented by Alistair Smith

The New World
The third and final part of this series on modern sculpture deals -with sculpture since 1945, beginning with Europe after the Second World War and moving to the United States, where many European artists had emigrated. The Abstract Expressionists and their followers are presented at work in their studios, at outdoor sites and in foundries. The reactions to Abstract Expressionism are then examined: Pop, Surrealism, Minimal Art.

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.
