: The First Lady: This Hurts Me More Than It Hurts You

by Terence Dudley
The new series starring Thora Hird, Robert Keegan, James Grout and Henry Knowles
with John Paul and John Bown
John Park, a sixteen-year-old grammar school boy, is committed to Foley Ridge Approved School near Furness for persistent stealing. The regime at the school is robust and Park absconds. Tom Danby recognises the boy and shelters him. Sarah is curious about the Approved School Service and quizzes the deputy headmaster, who is a progressive teacher and hell-bent on reform. She finds out that the deputy head is in direct conflict with the headmaster, who is a devout believer in corporal punishment, to the point of attracting charges of brutality. The battle lines are drawn and Sarah finds herself in the middle of the controversy.

: Sportsnight with Coleman

The busiest week of world heavyweight boxing. Tonight from the Madison Square Garden, New York, the twelve-round international heavyweight battle between Buster Mathis (Michigan) and Jerry Quarry (Los Angeles)
Commentator, Harry Carpenter
Mathis, a six foot three inches, sixteen stone giant, is contracted to fight next for London promoter Harry Levene. Mathis has fought twenty-four professional contests.
Irish-American Quarry defeated Blackpool's Brian London one year ago: a former Golden Gloves heavyweight champion who wants to fight in Britain. In thirty professional contests he has revealed himself as a brave, swashbuckling Californian heavyweight.
If Mathis wins will he fight the winner of this week's Billy Walker - Jack Bodell battle at the Wembley Empire Pool?

The Grand National Preview
A night when racing's most famous steeplechase event is probed in detail by the amateur and professional jockeys.

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.
