Omnibus

Marevna and Marika Omnibus wishes a happy 88th birthday to an extraordinary lady with the second showing of this highly praised documentary about a bizarre household.
Marevna and Marika live in what looks like an ordinary, rambling house in Ealing with their eight dogs and two cats, but inside they inhabit a magical world of fantasy and memories of Paris in the 1920s.
Marevna, 88 last month, is painter of Russian birth; she was a friend of Picasso and the mistress of Mexican artist Diego
Rivera. Her daughter, Manka, is a dancer and actress, now famous for her extraordinary one-woman cabaret shows.
The film is a documentary portrait of their life now and an evocation of the dream world which they still inhabit.

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.
