: Arena: Dennis Potter

'You can open your veins on television more easily than anywhere. It's the last stronghold for the individualist-writer.' Over the last 20 years Dennis Potter has established himself as not only television's most celebrated playwright, but also its most outspoken. His powerful and daring plays, from Stand Up Nigel Barton - written after he stood for parliament in 1964, through Pennies from Heaven, to the triumph of The Singing Detective have provoked extreme reactions both for and against.
Above all Potter takes a moral position - he describes himself as a religious dramatist. Throughout his work he mines recurring themes and obsessions - his childhood in the Forest of Dean, illness, his sense of the self, sex, the techniques of television itself.
In tonight's Arena he discusses with Alan Yentob the feelings and attitudes that motivate him.

: Conversation Piece

starring
Burt Lancaster Helmut Berger
Silvana Mangano
Elegantly directed by Visconti, Conversation Piece is dominated by a finely-controlled performance by Burt Lancaster as the solitary professor who has filled his grand apartment in Rome with 18th-century paintings of family groups known as 'conversation pieces'. But when the Countess Brumonti lures the reclusive professor into accepting some tenants, he finds his privacy and self-composure increasingly disrupted by the sexually ambiguous presence of the Countess's handsome young German lover.

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.
