A Rugby Union Preview
If Rugby Union to the Welsh is a religion, then KENNETH GRIFFITH must be its most devout disciple, and his birthplace Tenby a strong-hold of the faith. We follow him and his son JONATHAN from Wales to the heathen terraces of Twickenham to discover what chance Wales have today of beating the arch enemy - England.
Rugby Union from Twickenham England v Wales
Wales, who last season oecame the first country to win the triple crown but not the Championship, begin the 1978 campaign against the ' old enemy ' at Twickenham. So often in the past England have succumbed to the Welsh invasion, but their determination in Paris suggests a tough match.

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.
