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 Cliff Morgan
Northampton, defeated earlier this season by today's visitors, take on a strong Coventry side who can call on the services of three of last Saturday's England three-quarter line. Great English internationals of the past such as Jeeps, Butterfield, and White have all worn the Northampton jersey; and what Scotsman — or Englishman, for that matter-will ever forget Andy Hancock 's* superb last-minute try to foil Scotland in the Calcutta Cup at Twickenham in 1965. The present Northampton side is also a force to be reckoned with. On the first of this month they provided no fewer than eleven players for the East Midlands in the county match against Cornwall, and three of their current side appeared for England last week in Dublin.

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.
