The Awakening Conscience by Alan Bowness
The fifth in a series of six talks by different speakers on important paintings in British collections.
Holman Hunt was 27 in 1853 when he painted The Awakening Conscience, now in the Tate Gallery in London. It is a picture of illumination and personal revelation, the secular counterpart of The Light of the World. Alan Bowness , art historian, considers the picture's allusions to the Bible and to such contemporary literary giants as Tennyson and Dickens.

: The Hermit of Meudon

A radio self-portrait of the brilliant and controversial French novelist Celine, pen-name of Dr Louis Ferdinand Destouches (1894-1961) Created by MICHAEL KITTERMASTER with Patrick Magee as Celine
He flirted with the left, was disenchanted by a visit to Russia, was virulent in his anti-Semitism and. when he was branded a ' collaborator ' during World War II, he fled to Germany and Denmark. His last ten years he spent in France as a recluse and a doctor for the poor.
I Journey to the End of the Night caused a great stir, but it was my undoing; I should never have written it. Medicine was my real vocation. I really wanted to become a psychiatrist. That would have served some purpose. A mad doctor in charge of madmen. I'd have been respected if I'd done that!'

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.
