: K: Kenneth Clark

Writer, lecturer, art historian, Kenneth Clark is best remembered as presenter of the landmark television series Civilisation. This profile of the man who did so much to shape the way people think about art, coincides with a repeat of this classic 13-part series, from 1969, on Saturday afternoons.
Lord Clark's career was a glittering public progression, a stark contrast to his complex and troubled private life. Friends and colleagues including Sir David Attenborough and Lord Grade are among those who recall him in this revealing insight into his life, which is illustrated with rarely seen archive material including clips from Civilisation, and various television interviews of the 70s.
Clark's three children also contribute, including Alan, one of Mrs Thatcher's most colourful and controversial ministers, whose own television profile is repeated this evening at 11.15pm.

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.
