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.
Often known as "moving day", the third round is when the leaderboard really begins to take shape and the race for the Claret Jug gets serious.
A year ago Sergio Garcia flew the flag for Spain and for the European Tour when he led the field into the final round of the 136th Open at Carnoustie. His performance, and eye-catching orange and red outfit, lit up a grey Saturday and offered genuine hope of a European Tour member triumphing in the event for the first time since Ernie Els at
Muirf ield in 2002 - and indeed becoming the first European-born player to win any major since Scotland's Paul Lawrie won the Open at Carnoustie itself eight years ago.

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.
