: Rugby Special

Ulster v Leinster
Ireland's domestic rugby scene is dominated by the Provincial Championship. Last season's title was shared between Leinster, Munster and Ulster, with Connacht taking the wooden spoon. Yesterday's match brought together the two sides so far undefeated this season. It also presented in opposition two members of the victorious 74 Lions captaining their respective provinces: TOM GRACE of Leinster and STEWART MCKINNEY taking over Ulster's captaincy from the mercurial Mike Gibson.

: The World About Us

Return to the Punjab
Narrated by ANDREW FAULDS
The Punjab in north west India is the homeland of the Sikh people. In a land fought over by Muslim and Hindu, the Sikhs created a unique religion in which they reconciled elements of both. Famous as warriors for 500 years, they are also noted for the extent of their migration around the world. This is the story of one Sikh family living in England who returned to the Punjab. Their children have little memory of their homeland, yet their schoolgirl daughter is going back to marry a man she has never seen. Her traditional wedding is the climax of this film, after which she returns to school in England.

: The Lively Arts

Giacomo Puccini, Master Craftsman Narrated and conducted by Bernard Keeffe
Puccini is the undisputed box-office king of the opera house. There's hardly a theatre in the world, from Stockholm to Sydney, that can survive a season without putting on one of his three best-sellers, La Bohème, Tosca and Madam Butterfly. What is it about his music that has made the public itself decide this? In this informal workshop-style analysis programme BERNARD KEEFFE concentrates on the masterly dramatic timing, the cunning choice of libretto, the melodic appeal and orchestral craftsmanship that set Puccini apart With

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.
