British Open Championship
Report by Tom Scott
From the Royal Lytham St. Annes Golf Club
When it was decided after the first World War to extend the championship rota beyond the traditional six courses to which it had previously been restricted, the Royal Lytham St. Annes course was the first to be added to the list. Many historic matches have been played over its testing eighteen holes. Bobby Jones won his first British championship there, and the course was the scene of the Amateur Championship of 1935 when the American Lawson Little beat Dr. William Tweddell on the last green.
It was on the Club's original nine-hole course that the Ladies' Championship was inaugurated in 1893.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
