: The House in Leicester Fields

Memories of Sir Joshua Reynolds whose house in Leicester Square was pulled down earlier thus year.
Devised and compiled by Leonard B. CottreII rAe C/Mracff! and other friends and visitors of Sir Joshua Reynolds
Ronald Simpson and Atholl Fleming now playing in The Platom Light appear by permission of Bryen, Linnit, and Dunfee
Production by Felix Felton
When it was announced a few months ago that Number Forty-Seven Leicester Square, home and studio of Sir Joshua Reynolds, among the first of British portrait painters and founder of the Royal Academy, was to be demolished, Leonard Cottrell. a young Birmingham man, among the many to protest. The demolishing of this old red-brick house that was Sir Joshua's home from his thirty-seventh year to the end of his life, gave Cottreli the idea to write a radio programme around it, partly in the hope that it may awaken people to realise the loss that the nation is suffering through the destruction of so many historic houses.
He has tried to bring to life some of the famous men and women who frequented it, either to Joshua's dining-room or to be painted in his studio - Dr. Johnson and Boswell, David Garrick, Edmund Burke, Fanny Burney, and so forth.
Listeners will hear the poignant scene in which Reynolds, while painting the portrait of the Marchioness of Hertford, felt his sight failing and realised that his career was at an end; and the broadcast will close with the great painter's death in February, 179.:.

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.
