At 3.0 Racing from The Curragh
The 1967 Irish Sweeps Derby run over 1 1/2 miles
Many of the best horses from England, France, Italy, and Ireland compete for one of the world's richest prizes of about £80,000.
(Television presentation by Telefis Eireann)

Results Service: Racing Results and Cricket scoreboard

When the first Irish Sweeps Derby was held in 1962 Irish racing joined the big time. Gone were the days when the Irish Derby was just another horse race, and the premier event of the racing year in Ireland now ranks as one of the big races of the world.
This afternoon on the plain of the Curragh the 1967 renewal of the race will be held and horses from Britain, France, and Ireland will be running over a mile and a half not only for the £80,000 in prize money but for the prestige and stud value that victory can bring - two previous winners, Meadow Court and Ragusa, have each been syndicated as stallions for £400,000.
The Irish are very keen on their horses because the horse breeding industry is an important part of the country's economy. However, what will interest most of the huge crowd today will be their own economy as they seek to find the winner. The British challenge will be headed by Ribocco (Lester Piggott) and Dart Board (Scobie Breasley) who finished second and third in the Epsom Derby.

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.
