: Private Life of an Easter Masterpiece: The Taking of Christ

When Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio completed his portrayal of Christ's betrayal in the Garden of Gethsemane in 1602, the image became one of the most celebrated paintings of the age. Two centuries later, however, this most radical of religious images had apparently vanished from the face of the earth, leading it to become known as Caravaggio's lost masterpiece. This documentary tells the story of the painting and its dramatic rediscovery in 1990. Director/Producer Ian Michael Jones Master class: page 26

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.
