: This Week's Composer

Albert Roussel (1869-1937) ' had to choose between the life of a sailor and a life of music, for the two are scarcely compatible. Sometimes I feel I would miss the sea and the roving life occasionally tedious but occasionally full of the unexpected - were it not that I so love my art.'

: Graham Sutherland - The Last Romantic?

1 It is not a question so much of a " tree like a figure " or a " root like a figure" - It Is a question of bringing out the anonymous personality of these things; at the same time they must bear the mould of their ancestry.'
(GRAHAM SUTHERLAND)
Edward Lucie-Smith reflects on Sutherland's approach to nature and man, and re-assesses his contribution to the British tradition and to
European Modernism. With the voice of the artist and contributions from, among others:
MRS GRAHAM SUTHERLAND , DR HUMPHREY SUTHERLAND , MRS VIVIEN INGMAN , LORD CLARK, DR WALTER HUSSEY ,
DANIEL MARCHESSEAU , HENRY MOORE and GIORGIO SOAVI. Music composed by MALCOLM CLARKE Of the Radiophonic Workshop. Producer JUDITH BUMPUS (Graham Sutherland Exhibition is at the Tate Gallery, London, from 19 May)

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.
