: 'TURNER'

A biographical sketch of J. M. W.
Turner, the artist by R. H. Wilenski
Produced by Stephen Potter
It is just one hundred years since the great painter Joseph William Mallord Turner first exhibited at the Royal Academy his most famous picture ' The Fighting Temeraire ', which now hangs in the National Gallery. Here is a programme to mark that centenary.
R. H. Wilenski , distinguished art critic, is not unknown as a broadcast talker, but this is the first time he has written a programme of this kind. His programme will present a practical and unromanticised picture of Turner's life in a number of dramatic scenes linked by narration.
You will first meet Turner as a young man, watching Sir Joshua Reynolds at work in his studio, and thereafter hear about some of the practical aspects of an artist's life-how, for example, he sold his pictures, what was his attitude to patrons, and theirs to him, what his public thought of him, and how he worked.
Among the characters to be introduced will be the famous Beckford, and John Ruskin.

J. H. Oliver

J. H. Oliver was in the Life
Guards fifty years ago, and in his talk tonight will have quite a lot to say about the barrack life of those times, in both its discipline and its seamier side.

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.
