: The Great Art Collection

The 20th Century: The Early Years
Continuing the series in which Edwin Mullins looks at some of the greatest paintings to emerge in Western art from the Renaissance to the present day.
The year is now 1900 and the pace of art begins to quicken, especially in Paris, the melting pot of 'isms', where
Post-Impressionism, Fauvism and Futurism chase each other round the cafes of the avant-garde.
There is still a place, too, for the magic of light as in BONNARD'S Nude" against the light, while leger's The wedding (described by Richard Cork ) and MONDRIAN'S Flowering apple tree show the imaginative powers of Cubism - all paintings originally shown in the series One Hundred Great Paintings.

: Previn on Concertos

In the second of six programmes recorded at the Royal Festival Hall, London marking the appointment of Andre Previn as Music Director of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
Vladimir Ashkenazy is the soloist in Beethoven Piano Concerto No 4 with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra leader BARRY GRIFFITHS conducted by Andre Previn 'To Beethoven and his contemporaries,' says Previn in his introductory essay, 'the mechanism of the piano was every bit as novel and exciting as computers and synthesisers are to young composers working today. Beethoven and the piano grew up together during a period of rapid experimentation. With its subtle gradations between loud and soft, the "pianoforte" provided a unique new world of sonority and expressive range, demonstrated from the very first chord of this concerto, one of the most popular works in the entire repertory.'

: Architecture at the Crossroads

Ten films about contemporary architecture 8: Houses Fit for People
The fame and fortune of top contemporary architects is largely based on monumental institutional structures - towering office blocks, new hotels and some museums. But what's happening to housing? Ugly, second-rate homes seem to have been the rule rather than the exception in our towns and cities. Now there's an increasing demand for a humane approach to the places we live in, to let some care shine through.
The changes so far are small, and rarely hit the headlines. Nevertheless, there can be exciting and even spectacular innovations in housing. The controversial Richard Bofill calls his houses on the outskirts of Paris 'castles for the poor'. The new towns of France feature interesting new homes by Henri Gaudin and Roland Castro ; in Germany Hans Hollein and 0. M. Ungers experiment with new town social housing schemes; while in England clean modern estates based on the findings of the modern movement have little chance of surviving, faced with people's preference for a quaint brick vernacular, aping 19th-century cottages.

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.
