World Heavyweight Boxing
JOE FRAZIER v. MANUEL RAMOS U.S.A. Mexico
A recording of the fight at Madison Square Garden, New York, in which Frazier defended his New York version of the World Heavyweight title
Commentator, Harry Carpenter
Joe Frazier , at twenty-four, is the most exciting young heavyweight in the world today. Winner of all his twenty fights, this exuberant Negro from Philadelphia has progressed steadily since he won the Olympic heavyweight Gold Medal in Tokyo four years ago.
In the confused situation which has reigned since Muhammad All was stripped of his title, Frazier is recognised in New York as world heavyweight champion.
Manuel Ramos , twenty-five-year-old Mexican champion, has won his last fifteen fights, including a points win over Ernie Terrell. In Mexico he is known as 'Tom
Thumb'—because he stands six foot three and a half inches and weighs fourteen and a half stone.
He has two trade marks: a flashing left hook, and an apparently inexhaustible capacity for staying strong under punishment.

THE KEN RUSSELL FESTIVAL

*
PROKOFIEV (1961) the first of the film biographies of famous artists, which are perhaps Ken Russell 's most important contribution to television. The life of the Russian composer is reconstructed with old film, photographs and specially shot material
Ken Russell achieved a remarkable rhythm and unity from all his material. The technique is obviously promising ... A brilliant, impressionistic account of Prokofiev ...
DAILY MAIL
A bold documentary reconstruction ...

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.

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.
