: Wile Norway Through the Year: Winter into Spring

Introduced by Peter Scott.

Norway has plenty of space for wildlife, and, even though its winters are very cold, herds of reindeer and rare arctic foxes can survive the bleak weather until the arrival of the cranes from Africa means that spring has come again, and there is new life everywhere.
Edited, written, and produced in Norway by Albert W. Owesen.

: The Wednesday Show

with David Jacobs
A weekly series of live programmes in which David Jacobs introduces people to talk to and entertain.
Introducing Deena Webster
The Dancers: Sally Graham, Robert Arditti, Cathy Lawrence, Len Bickley, Molly Molloy, Scott Mackee

Mr. Wednesday
It takes quite a lot of behind-the-scenes work to get The Wednesday Show on the air each week. All the planning is done in a small office bursting at the seams with people. On the wall a chart lists past and possible future guests - famous names ranging from Enoch Powell to Daliah Lavi and taking in people like Baroness Stocks and Kenneth Williams en route. David Jacobs is there looking very informal without a tie, contributing as much as anyone to the discussion.
He's done his homework carefully for one of the subjects to be discussed on next week's show and is trying to think of someone from his enormous range of show-business friends and acquaintances who'd be suitable to talk about it. 'What we really need,' he says thoughtfully, 'is a head of State!'
Topicality is a keynote of The Wednesday Show. If anything Interesting crops up at the last minute, then one of the other items is postponed to make room for it. Which means that each week the whole team, David Jacobs included, can never sit back and think the show is organised right up till the time the opening music starts.

: International Football: The Inter-Cities Fairs Cup Final: Ferencvaros Hungary v. Leeds United England

Having beaten the Hungarian side one-nil in August, Leeds United tonight play the second leg of this two-match Final at the Nep Stadium, Budapest.

Leeds have made a great start to the new English season, adding goal-scoring flair to their renowned defensive qualities, but this match represents a tremendous test.
Is a one-goal lead big enough to hold one of the strongest clubs in European football?
David Coleman reports from Budapest.
Presented by the Hungarian Television Service

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.
