: Whoosh!

Rick Jones, Dawn MacDonald, Jonathan Collins invite you to follow them to a place where anything can happen.

Jonathan Collins, at twenty, is the baby of the Whoosh! trio, but nevertheless he's had eight years' television experience. He started off in schools programmes, and has gone on to greater things in TV drama, including one "Wednesday Play" yet to be seen. He enjoys "Whoosh!" immensely—. "I'm the most practical one. It's the other two, who should know better, who are always rushing off and doing crazy things."

The Six-Nations Contest
The first day of this important international at the start of the Olympic season sees Britain competing against the national teams of France, Holland, Italy. Sweden, and West Germany Commentators, Max Robertson and Harry Walker
Presented by the Swedish Television Service
Britain have a tremendous record in the Six-Nations Contest. Other countries have won it when they have been host nation-only Britain, winners three times in the past four years, have won away from home. Sweden staged-and won-the first contest in 1962, and will be determined to repeat that success now they are host nation again. Spearheading Britain's bid to retain the title will be Scotland's Bobby McGregor, world record holder for the 110 yards freestyle, and fifteen-year-old wonder girl sprinter, Alex Jackson.
Badminton Horse Trials
Cross Country

Commentator, Dorian Williams
Television presentation by Peter Bale and John Dobson
The three-day event is the toughest of all equestrian competitions-and Grandstand cameras bring you today the most gruelling phase, the cross-country section of the Speed and Endurance Test. Dressage occupied the first day of the event and tomorrow comes the final section, jumping. Britain, the United States, and Ireland are among the countries most likely to offer the strongest challenge for medals at the Mexico Olympics in October, and all three are competing at Badminton.

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, and programmes to purchase from BBC Store and other providers.

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.
