Challenge 87 for the America's Cup


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
A Place of Consequence The 1987 America's Cup competition moves to its climax as the USA and New
Zealand battle for the right to challenge Australia. DENNIS CONNER in Stars and Stripes or CHRIS DICKSON in KZ 7 will go forward to the final races. Back in 1832 Captain
Fremantle, RN, hoped that, one day, his settlement might become 'a place of consequence'. Today
Fremantle is the scene of the biggest conflict in yachting history. Ian Wooldridge discovers that all the traditional values have been preserved: avarice, acrimony and chicanery.
It is a story of designers, skippers and crew-men giving their all for a chance of victory; it is a story of bankers, tycoons and assorted multinationals determined to get their hands on the Cup for reasons which don't have that much to do with sport.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
