Golf: Benson and Hedges International Open from St Mellion.
Nick Faldo, who made a disappointing attempt at winning his third US Masters title in Augusta last month, has returned to European Tour action in this tournament. The world No 1 was only one shot off the play-off which decided last year's event, when Australian Peter Senior beat Zimbabwe's Tony Johnstone. Faldo topped the Order of Merit last season and has already been victorious on the European Tour this year, winning the Johnnie Walker Classic in Singapore in February.
Other 1993 Tour winners hoping to be in contention in today's third round are Mark James, David Gilford, Sam Torrance and Frenchman Jean Van de Velde. Previous winners of this tournament, Sandy Lyle and Jose Maria Olazabal, are also expected to mount a serious challenge.
Commentary by Peter Alliss, Bruce Critchley, Alex Hay, Clive Clark, Mike Hughesdon and Dougie Donnelly.

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.
