The 105th
Championship
For the fifth time the ' Open ' comes to Royal Birkdale Golf Club on the Lancashire coast. Scene of many great matches, Royal Birk dale remembers the tenacity of Arnold Palmer when he won in 1961. In the third round, on the 16th hole, he played his ball from a seemingly impossible lie in scrub to within inches of the pin. A plaque on the spot commemorates this feat.
In the final round in 1971 Lee Trevino found trouble at the 17th, hitting his tee shot into the sand-hill and taking seven for the hole. He won however from the irrepressible Mr Lu of Taiwan, who proved the winner in the popularity stakes.
Can the younger golfers retain the title won on their behalf by Tom Watson last year? The American challenge is extremely strong, with JOHNNY MILLER , BEN CRENSHAW , HUBERT GREEN and HALE IRWIN leading the field. But past champions will not let go easily and GARY PLAYER (South Africa), TOM WEISKOPF (USA) and the legendary JACK NICKLAUS are all determined to regain the cup and with it the £7,500 top prize.

: Montreal- A Royal Pursuit

On the day of Olympic Selection a candid, informal look at HRH Princess Anne and Captain Mark Phillips training in preparation for places in the Three-day Event Equestrian team for Montreal.
Jackie Stewart, three times World Motor Racing Champion, spent two days with the Royal couple as they went through their training routine - a routine which lasts from dawn to dusk. Trying to prepare for the Olympics (in between Royal engagements for the Princess and being a full-time soldier, as is Captain Phillips) stretches their ingenuity to the utmost.
To quote PRINCESS ANNE 'when I first started competing I was just the jockey - now it's different - really have to muck in.' Mucking in means driving the horsebox, stable management, cleaning and cossetting her horses and competing at the highest level with all the pressures that brings. Reporter JACKIE STEWART

: Explorers

The British Academy Award-winning series of ten programmes 3: The Story of Alexander von Humboldt and his amazing exploration of the Orinoco River in 1799 Written by ROBERT MULLER
Introduced and narrated by David Attenborough from the Royal Geographical Society, London
Humboldt was a genius. He was the father of modern geography and the first truly scientific explorer. He was an aristocrat with money but by the time he had completed his travels he Was broke. But rarely has a private fortune been so well spent. On his journey through Venezuela he studied giant electric eels for the first time; he brought back the deadly Indian poison curare; he collected thousands of plant specimens never before seen in Europe; and he proved conclusively that there was a natural waterway linking the Amazon and Orinoco rivers. Calaracts, disease, dangerous wild animals - Humboldt faced them all with courage and intense curiosity.
This series has provided some of the viewing highlights of the year.
(SUNDAY PEOPLE)
What a first-rate series this has turned out to be - imaginatively told and often brilliantly and painstakingly filmed.
(SUNDAY EXPRESS)
A compelling programme with marvellous pictures. (GUARDIAN)

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.

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.
