Rugby Special: The International Championship 1968-69: Wales v. Ireland


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

At the historic Cardiff Arms Park the all-conquering Irish - undefeated in four International matches this season - face the final hurdle in their bold bid to win the Triple Crown for the first time since 1949 and the International Championship title which they last won in 1951. And news today of the other big Rugby Union interest in the West where across the Bristol Channel, in a setting far removed from the glamour of the Arms Park, 10,000 partisan Cornishmen packed into the tiny club ground at Redruth will be urging Cornwall to victory over Lancashire in the Final of the County Championship, an honour Cornwall last won in 1908.

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.
