FRANK BELLAMY - MAGAZINES: RADIO TIMES LISTING


INTRODUCTION to Radio Times

Radio Times 1-7 January 1972
Frank's first work in the Seventies for the Radio Times was not his first work for the BBC; he had been commissioned in early 1960 to produce two drawings of aliens that were used in a "Focus" programme for 10 guineas. He won the 1972 Academy of Comic Book Arts Awards (for material published in 1971; awarded in 1972) for "Best Foreign Artist". Due to a technicality it was his Radio Times work on "Star Trek" that was judged rather than any of his past comics work as he was, at the time, not working in comics as such, but had just started "Garth" in the Daily Mirror. His work as 'the' Doctor Who artist was reprinted in a book edited by his son David in Timeview: The complete Doctor Who illustrations of Frank Bellamy in 1985 and the illustration here has been reprinted so many times(and garnered praise from Jon Pertwee himself)
