: Tomorrow's World

A Special Edition from Japan including a preview of Expo 70 Introduced by Raymond Baxter Poster in a Japanese factory:
Made in Japan ... how come nobody sniggers any more ...
The self-confidence it reflects is justified - Japan ranks second only to the USA in patent applications, and second to none in economic growth. In February it joined the ' space club ' by being the fourth country (after USSR, USA, and France) to launch its own satellite with its own rocket. Now it plays host to the world at Expo 70 in Osaka. Ideas are abundant as cherry blossom. Nobody sniggers any more.

: Association Football

Highlights of one of tonight's top soccer fixtures as season 1969-70 draws to its final, exciting moments.
Commentator DAVID COLEMAN
Do the British still dominate European soccer? Tonight should give the answer as the English and Scottish champions, Leeds United and Celtic, play their return matches in the rich and important European Cup.
Manchester City (in the European Cup Winners Tournament) with Newcastle and Arsenal (in the European Fairs Cup) are all doing battle for British club prestige.
Added to this is the annual clash between the Scottish and English Football Leagues.

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 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 find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

This is a historical record of both 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.
