This week's theme:
The Nude and the Naked Goya (1746-1828) The Naked Maja at the Prado, Madrid
Nakedness has a special meaning in relation to Goya's art It is not divesting people of clothing but a nakedness of character. All the people Goya painted are, in this sense, naked. They bare their secrets to him, which is why he is one of the greatest of all portrait painters.

: Chronicle

The Wreck of the Mary Rose
It was a hot day in July 1545. England and France were at war again. French galleys 'ranged and scoured the seas even to the Isle of Wight', and King Henry VIII saw the French ships for himself from Southsea Castle, and he fretted, and his teeth stood on an edge to see the bravery of his enemies, to come so near his nose and he not able to encounter them.' He assembled his strongest fleet in Portsmouth Harbour and sent it out to do battle. As his great battleship, the Mary Rose , set sail with the rest of the fleet, she fired her first broadside, heeled violently to starboard, and sank. For more than 400 years the site of the wreck was forgotten and the Mary Rose was believed lost. Chronicle cameras were with the divers when the site was first yielding its secrets, ten years ago. This programme, first shown in 1980, brings you the story of the ship, the men who went down with her and a report on the people who excavated the site.
Tomorrow night Chronicle brings you up-to-date on the greatest exercise in underwater archaeology that Britain has ever known. Narrated by ANDREW FAULDS

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.
