: Artists on Film

Scenes from Working Lives
The last of five programmes In tonight's, four abstract artists each paints a picture and talks about the work.
Paintings are to be experienced. They are not to be understood, they're to be recognised.
In 1964 William Hayter (1901-88) was filmed in Paris; in 1979 Victor Pasmore (b 1908) was shown at work in Malta and in the same year
John Hoyland (b 1934) spent six days with cameras in his London studio. In 1983
Patrick Heron (b 1920) could be seen painting in St Ives.
The programme ends with a short quotation from the 1969 film made with the sculptor Anthony Caro (b 1924), in which he speaks with characteristic economy about his working life. Series compiled by CHRISTOPHER BURSTALL

This week, a team from the Australian Film and Television School finds out why young people from
Britain's inner cities have flown 10,000 miles to spend their Christmas digging pits on the bleak moors and mountains of south west Tasmania. The film crew discover that, for this surprisingly good-humoured group, anything is better than unemployment.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
