Ten of them on the air as well, for he made his radio debut in September, 1926, as compere in a Variety show. After that he broadcast in such shows as ' Chariot's Hour ' and The Radio Follies ', of both of which he was producer and part-author ; indeed he has been heard in practically everything from pantomime to Shakespeare (he played Lancelot Gobbo in The Merchant of Venice)-revue, musical comedy, vaudeville, the Children's Hour, surprise items, and comic opera.

: The Tragic Life of Vincent van Gogh

by Marianne Helweg and H.L. Morrow
A dramatic reconstruction, from his letters and other contemporary documents, of the life - in England, France, Belgium, and his native Holland - of Vincent Van Gogh, the great nineteenth-century artist.
With music specially written by Gerrard Williams
The cast includes: Geoffrey Keen, Norman Shelley, Robert Farquharson, Violet Marquesita, Carleton Hobbs, Morland Graham, Gladys Young, J.B. Rowe, Kenneth Ball, Rita Tate, Doreen Heath, Fanny Wright, Alfred Bristowe, C. Jervis-Walter, and Howard Marion-Crawford
Produced by H.L. Morrow
Just as Richard III is remembered mainly by his humped back, his attitude to his nephews, and his ill-luck at Bosworth, Van Gogh is perhaps to many of us little more than an eccentric Dutchman of genius who painted sunflowers and cut off his ear. If we know no more of him than that - and even if we know a great deal more-this evening's programme should do much to enlighten us. Van Gogh was not only one of the most remarkable of all the post-impressionist painters but one of the most fascinating, most puzzling personalities in the whole history of painting, a character comparable with Strindberg or Dostoevsky.
Fortunately Van Gogh expressed himself on paper as well as on canvas, and his letters - particularly those to his brother, the only contemporary who believed in his genius-are very moving documents.

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.

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.
