: New Scottish Art

Gwen Hardie has lived and worked in Berlin since she won a scholarship to study under Georg Baselitz in 1984. Her art explores the female form, often in close-up detail, creating at one point 'an uneasy relationship with pornography'. Hardie's recent work in paint and sculpture is freer in expression, drawing on primitive art of the South Seas.

However, careful selection of plants, shrubs and trees can turn the most undesirable patch of ground into a garden to be proud of. Production assistant JAYNE SAVAGE Producer PHILIP FRANKLIN BBC Pebble Mill

: Five Sculptors

Anish Kapoor

Anish Kapoor is known for his distinctive use of bright colours and seductive, almost totemistic shapes, which reflect the influence of his childhood in India. His latest show in London has been called one of the most vibrant exhibitions of recent years.

This film shows Kapoor at work in his studio, and takes him to the British Museum to the classical Indian sculpture which has inspired much of his work.


Cameraman: John Daly
Director: Daisy Goodwin

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
