: Master Photographers

1: Alfred Eisenstaedt
This is the first in a series of six conversations With some of the grand old master photographers of this century.
Alfred Eisenstaedt , now 85 years old, has been called the father of photo-journalism, the man who invented the candid camera. During the 60 years of his photographic life, first in his native Germany and later in America, he has photographed more famous people than any other photographer. No fewer than 90 covers of Life magazine have carried his pictures. But the cold statistics say little about the formidable record of his work. It is a testimony of events and people who shaped much of our present life. Talking in his New York office to Peter Adam , he picks out a few from the vast number of portraits of writers, musicians, film stars and politicians. They range from Richard Strauss and Toscanini to Marlene Dietrich and Marilyn Monroe , from Churchill and Shaw to Hitler and Thomas Mann. Many people are familiar with his most famous pictures, but few know the face of the man who took them.

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.
