: RUGBY UNION

The 87th Varsity Match
OXFORD UNIVERSITY
(38 wins) v.
CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY
(35 wins)
Last season's match, ending in an 8-0 win for Cambridge, came as a bitter disappointment to Oxford skipper Bob Phillips who had led his cosmopolitan side, including International players from Ireland and South Africa, into this match : as firm favourites. This season
Phillips brings to Twickenham a j team built around the formidable talents of Chris Laidlaw, scrum- 1 half of the fabulous 1966/67 touring All Blacks. But can one man, however talented, swing the fine balance of a match universally acknowledged as one of the rare examples of British competitive rugby?
Direct from Twickenham
Cliff Morgan introduces the occasion, the captains, the players-and discusses with both past and present Blues their attitudes to these games which have achieved a unique place in British sporting history.

John Earle and Janet Kelly will be demonstrating models of the best inventions, and Norman Tozer will be talking to the Tom Tom judges.
Jeremy Carrad thought it was time to get away from the studio, so he took the robot out for the day. Things did not go quite as planned, and you can see what happened when Tobor began his exciting adventures in the countryside.

: COMEDY TONIGHT

A series of comedy films with the great laughter-makers
Tonight:
MAE WEST, W. C. FIELDS in My Little Chickadee with Joseph Calleia , Dick Foran
Original screenplay by MAE WEST and W. C. FIELDS
Produced by Lester Cowan
Directed by Edward Cline
Mae West and W. C. Fields, cherished as one of the outstanding screen combinations of all time, blend their colourful personalities in this riotous comedy of American frontier days.
W. C. Fields wrote many of his own scripts under such pen-names as Mahatma Kane Jeeves and Otis Criblecoblis, although, in deference to his co-star, tonight's film bears the real names of its joint authors. It is, however, reputed that they made the film up as they went along.

: DEATH OR GLORY

Tuesday's Documentary
Britain is still paying to maintain an Army in Germany-the British Army of the Rhine. This film is about life in that Army as seen through the eyes of one of its regiments
The 17th/21st Lancers
*
The 17th/21st Lancers are a regiment with a proud history. They charged with the Light Brigade, fought at Khartoum, served with distinction in France in the First World War and in the Western Desert and Italy in the Second. Now for the best part of seventeen years they have been a unit of the British Army of the Rhine.
The regimental motto of the 17th/21st Lancers is 'Death or Glory.' In Germany they have seen little of either; and yet that there should be neither death nor glory is the whole point of their being there at all.

: CONTRASTS

A series of music and arts features
WATER MUSIC
A portrait of the River Thames from source to sea to the music of HANDEL
The most celebrated musical trip by water took place in 1717 when George I set out from Westminster in a barge, bound for nearby Chelsea for a late-night supper. The adjoining barge contained fifty musicians playing music ' composed specially by the famous Handel' lasting about an hour. The King was so pleased he had it performed three times in the same evening.
Tonight's journey is more comprehensive. It starts at the source of the Thames and proceeds to the estuary, with no attempt at historical reconstruction, using about half of the complete Water Music. There is no river in the world as rich both in historical association and in sharp contrasts of mood. Handel's great baroque score is a fitting and lasting travelling companion.

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.
