"The human face and the human figure are what I'm interested in most," says 35-year-old artist
Peter Howson , "and distortion of the human face and of the human figure interest me even more."
A painter could hardly find greater distortion than among the slaughter of the Bosnian conflict. Howson an artist with a growing reputation that has attracted such clients as Madonna and Bob Geldof , was selected as Britain's official war artist and sent out to the front line, based in Vitez.
Comparing what he finds with the tough environment in which he works, in a run-down area of Glasgow, he says: "it was total anarchy. The typical dour
Calvinist wife-beater is a perfect gentleman in comparison to some of the people that hang about here."
Howson's impressions of and reactions to what he saw bring fresh perspective to the tragedy of civil war. "The experience of Bosnia," he says, "has changed my whole perception of humanity." Director Michael Houldey Series editor Paul Watson

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.
