Barry McGuigan (champion) v

Barry McGuigan , the Clones Cyclone, makes his first defence of the title he won so convincingly on that memorable June evening in London.
Bernard Taylor, the 23-year-old American, who fought a draw with former champion Eusebio Pedroza , is the official No 1 challenger in this mandatory defence.
Taylor, the BT Express, will need more than a good record to beat McGuigan. Nearly
7,000 fanatical supporters will lift the roof off the King's Hall at Belfast's first world title fight for 36 years-as local hero Barry makes the fight a truly home town affair. Introduced by Desmond Lynam Commentator

Starring Gene Wilder, Richard Pryor, JoBeth Williams.
Skip Donahue and Harry Monroe, two of New York's finest - but least successful - theatrical talents decide to head west to California and health, wealth and happiness. Unfortunately, a case of mistaken identity en route leads to them being put in jail - nothing serious, just 125 years apiece! Life inside is no bed of roses and Skip is determined to break out - not using the traditional wooden horse but a mechanical bucking bull!

: Saturday Movie Classic: Brighton Rock

continues the season of acclaimed films introduced by Barry Norman tonight starring
Richard Attenborough Hermione Baddeley
William Hartnell
Set in the seaside town at the height of the holiday season, Brighton Rock tells the story of Pinkie Brown , a psychopathic gang leader, who hunts down a journalist responsible for the death of another hoodlum.
The Boulting Brothers' famous film version of Graham Greene 's novel is particularly notable for the menacing performance by Richard Attenborough as the 17-year-old Pinkie. This was one of the first British films to make extensive use of locations, giving the film a powerful sense of authenticity.

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.

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.
