: Kitaj - in the Picture

R B Kitaj is counted among the world's greatest living artists, a figurative painter from the generation that includes his friends David Hockney and Lucian Freud. This month the largest ever exhibition of his work opened at the Tate Gallery in London and will travel to Los Angeles and New York. He has never before agreed to be filmed and this Late Show special offers a unique insight into his life and work. He speaks frankly about his first sexual encounters in the brothels of Havana, his attitudes to erotica, his love of the movies, his Jewishness, exile and death - all the themes of his art.
His paintings celebrate the richness of his background, creating memorable images full of energy, colour and character. They are brought to life with his vivid story-telling and readings from his journals. A Rothschild-Auerbach production tor BBCtv

: The Human Genome Project - Relative Risk

A project that offers hope for fatal genetic diseases, could also allow employers and insurers to practise a new form of discrimination.

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.
