: Goya

Looking Both Ways
Francisco Goya (1746-1828) was born in Fuendetodos, a small isolated village in the heart of Aragon and died in self-imposed exile in Bordeaux at the age of 82. 'Goya showed the inhabitants of the mind to be as real as anything in the other real world of sight and sense.' In the fourth in a series of six films Sir Lawrence Gowing concentrates on a number of paintings in the Prado
Museum, Madrid that he sees as landmarks in Goya's
'splendid and terrible career'. They include The Parasol, his early sun-bathed design for a tapestry, The Shootings of 3rd May, the great icon of Spanish insurgence, and so-called black paintings such as Saturn Devouring One of His Children with which
Goya covered the walls of his own home.

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.
