Boxing: Heavyweight Championship of the World: Joe Frazier (USA) World Heavyweight Champion v Bob Foster (USA) World Light Heavyweight Champion
Introduced by Frank Bough

At 1.10* Grandstand's Fight of the Week brings you an exclusive recording of the week's big boxing occasion in Detroit.
For Joe Frazier, unbeaten in 25 fights, this is the most important fight of his career. If he beats Foster, his next defence of the heavyweight title is almost certain to be against Cassius Clay, the unbeaten world champion until he was stripped of his crown, outside the ring, three years ago. Bob Foster, Frazier's opponent in Detroit, is the first light heavyweight champion for 14 years to challenge for the heavyweight crown.

: Wildlife Safari to Ethiopia: 3: Africa's Newest National Park

The third film in a new series of zoological exploration
Introduced by Jeffery Boswall

The expedition sees how setting up a new park involves scientific, technical and human problems, but already visitors can see more Beisa Oryx here than anywhere else in the world. Stone-throwing vultures break open ostrich eggs. Carmine bee-eaters ride jockey-style on the backs of bustards, using their steeds as beaters.

A bewildering host of other birds, mammals, insects, and reptiles can be seen, to say nothing of spectacular scenery including the Awash falls, and a far-from-dead volcano rising to over 6,000 ft.

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.
