Synopsis

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.
Introduced by Harry Carpenter featuring tonight:
International Boxing from the Royal Albert Hall
CHARLIE MAGRI returns to the ring determined to wipe out the memory of his shock defeat last year to the Mexican Juan Diaz which destroyed his chances of a world title challenge.
The Greyhound TV Trophy Final
Belle Vue, the oldest established greyhound circuit in the country, hosts tonight's 24th Final of the TV Trophy.
The top marathon dogs who qualified from the heats two weeks ago race over two laps (815m) of this famous track, for a record first prize of £2,500.
World Ski Jumping Championships Over 100,000 spectators create a cup final atmosphere at the foot of the famous 90-m hill in Oslo and the home crowd will be desperate for a victory from their favourite sons, PER BERGERUD and ROGER RLTJD. MANFRED DECKERT of East Germany, the Four Hills Champion, will be their biggest threat.

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.
