Golf: the Open


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.
St Andrews, the course on Scotland's east coast widely regarded as the home of golf, is the testing setting for this 134th staging of the British Open.
Five years ago, Tiger Woods was the runaway winner the last time the event was held here but the American has found his dominance challenged by the likes of Vijay Singh, Ernie Els, Retief Goosen and Phil Mickelson. The bid to be the first European winner since Paul Lawrie in is likely to be spearheaded by Sergio Garcia, Luke Donald and Padraig Harrington, while there'll be an emotional welcome for three-time victor Jack Nicklaus as he makes his final appearance.
The commentary team includes Peter Alliss, Ken Brown, Sam Torrance, Wayne Grady, Mark James and Laura Davies. Plus reports from Hazel Irvine, Dougie Donnelly and Craig Doyle. Radio 5 Live has coverage from 9am. Highlights at 9.50pm on BBC2. Executive producer Paul Davies Editor Barbara Slater
VIDEO Plus- code for 9.00am-2.00pm

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.
