Saracens v Bristol
Saracens, the famous North London club, this year celebrate their Centenary. In 100 years they have grown from modest beginnings to full major club recognition and provided England with such internationals as vie HARDING and GEORGE SHERRIFF. Bristol, their opponents, typify the strength of West Country rugby. They lost only 12 matches out of 50 last season, scoring over 1,000 points.

: The World About Us

All Change in Umtata?
Umtata is the tin-roofed capital of a nation that will be born the day after tomorrow - the Transkei. It's the first of the ' homelands ' - the territories that the white South African government are giving over to black rule. Its birth is being greeted with international indifference, because most nations see the Transkei as little more than a commercial for apartheid - a country that will be independent in name only. But what about the Transkeians themselves? Who are they and what do they think?

: The Lively Arts

Introduced by Melvyn Bragg Refugees Reflect
In tonight's programme we have brought together two people who are both refugees from repressive regimes. Each is involved in the arts. Milos Kirek is a Czech actor. He left Prague in 1968 after the Russian invasion. Charles Elsesser is a Chilean film-maker and TV producer. He and his family managed to escape from Chile after the overthrow of President Allende's government.
MILOS KIREK : 'It's one of the ironies of the situation of being an actor in England, coming here because of the Russian invasion and earning my living playing Russians.'
CHARLES ELSESSER: 'Artists are not really good for belonging to a certain party. We are - a fly in the ointment.'

: Uncle Sam Meets the Red Dragon

Barbershop harmony singing is a non-martial art practised by the middle-aged of middle America. On a recent holiday to Britain, 100 ' barbershoppers ' met 90 singing Welshmen from the PENDYRUS MAIE CHOIR. Ignoring the basic rule which states never to play the Welsh at home, they organised an impromptu concert at Ebbw Vale where a less than impartial crowd heard ' Bread of heaven' jostle with ' Shine on harvest moon ' and Mozart compete with ' Wait till the sun shines, Nellie.'

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.
