Great Collectors

Four films about people with a passion to possess great art and the money to indulge it. Written and narrated by Harriet Crawley
3: Henry P. Mcllhenny 'I always have had this terrific acquisitive urge. I can't resist buying things. It's a disease. You know, Renoir said that all collectors are harmless maniacs.'
Henry Mcllhenny lives with his art. His house in Philadelphia is filled with great French paintings of the 19th century, including
'Moulin Rouge' by Toulouse Lautrec; 'Rain' by Van Gogh ; Cezanne's portrait of his wife; Renoir's 'Mile Legrand'. He has always had the money to buy, and with unerring taste he has assembled over 50 years an extraordinary collection worth millions. Film cameraman KEITH HOPPER Film editor CHRIS WADE

2: Sir Alfred and Lady Beit On the walls of an 18th-century country house, below the Wicklow hills near
Dublin, hang some of the finest Old Master paintings in private hands. They form the collection of Sir Alfred Beit and include pictures by Rubens, Goya, Velazquez, Murillo, Frans Hals and Gainsborough.
'The letter' by Vermeer is one of only two privately-owned paintings by that artist - the other belongs to HM The Queen. Sir Alfred's uncle started the collection with the proceeds of diamond mining in South Africa. His nephew grew up with great art around him and one of his earliest memories was being asked as a boy to guide visitors around the collection. Film cameraman

Great Collectors

The first of four films about people with a passion to possess great art and the money to indulge it.
Written and narrated by Harriet Crawley Forbes and Sons
'I look at much and if.... nostalgia, recollection, whatever it is.... turns me on, I buy it.'
American publisher Malcolm Forbes and sons Kip, Bobby and Steve are known as America's first family of collecting. They have a boyish enthusiasm for acquiring things that would leave most people gasping for breath. Their priceless collections are scattered around the world, from
Morocco to Colorado. They range from Old Master and Victorian paintings to toy soldiers, toy boats, modern motorbikes, American historical documents and, worth over a million pounds each, 11 Faberge Imperial Russian easter eggs.

Great Collectors

The last of four films
Written and narrated by Harriet Crawley
Seiji and Chako Hatakeyama 'Don't start collecting. Once you acquire the good things, the more you want. It's like opium.'
Seiji Hatakeyama did not listen to the advice of his father, and he and his wife have spent a lifetime buying fine Oriental art. Seiji, descended from a noble Samurai family, is the wealthy president of an industrial corporation. Yet, unlike a Western collector, he devotes himself to learning the ancient skills of the artists whose work he has collected.

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.
