: Images of War: Artists 1939-45: 1: John Worsley

Memories of World War II recalled by artists and illustrated by their paintings.
When the war started in 1939, John Worsley, a promising young artist, volunteered for the Navy. After three weeks training, he went to sea as a midshipman on an armed merchant cruiser. His drawings of life on board ship were spotted by Sir Kenneth Clark, and he was made an official war artist in 1943. Determined to record the Navy in action, he painted the Salerno and Reggio landings, but his luck ran out. During a raid with a band of Yugoslavian partisans he was taken prisoner. He gave a great deal of thought to escaping and one of his ingenious plans became the subject of the feature film "Albert RN".

... of documentary
A series of films portraying issues, institutions and individuals. Mister Perks
Bernard Perks is about to be released from Cardiff Prison where he has served six months for shop-lifting.
Prison Officers describe him as a supernumerary member of staff
For he has spent 15 of his 20 adult years behind bars.
Not that he is a hardened criminal. His problem is alcohol. Every time he is released, the lure of the public house is too great a temptation. Mr Perks becomes drunk, and when he runs out of money he turns to petty crime. Nothing that the prison, medical, or probation services can do has any effect. He is the typical recidivist drinker.
He has lost not only his house, his wife and his children but also his self-respect.
But this time Bernard Perks is determined to keep off the drink for good.
He is fit, well, and dried-out. He is released at an unusual time, to escape the ' reception committee of old drinking cronies at the prison gates. But he has reckoned without Ivor his main boozing companion ...

: Grapevine

David Rappaport takes two lumps and keeps on stirring as the show reports from different corners of the country. In Burnley 550 small businesses have started since January, with the help of a pilot Government Enterprise Allowance Scheme - one is a café! In Sunder-land a neighbourhood project saved a derelict factory from the bulldozers and turned it into a community and leisure centre. In Brentor, Devon, local women set up their own shop, and at Liskeard, Cornwall, a women's scheme started - yes - another caf6! The idea is clearly catching on,. Catch on to this week's programme including Juliet Blake 's Gripevine.

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.

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.
