: Omnibus: Frank Auerbach

To coincide with an exhibition at London's Royal Academy of Art, this film provides a rare insight into the reclusive, obsessive life of acclaimed painter Frank Auerbach.
Sealed in his Camden studio working furiously for days a year, Auerbach has links with the outside world only through his models, who include friends and family members as well as actors, film-makers and academics.
Here, he talks passionately about his densely expressionistic and highly individual art, his heroes, his compulsions and his bizarre rituals, as well as his arrival in England from Berlin as a child, alone, in 1939. Director Hannah Rothschild ; Producer Jake Auerbach (S) Anthony Trollope : Toffs and Tiaras. an Omnibus special, is showing on Tuesday at 10.35pm on BBC1

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.
