The 90th Varsity Match
Oxford University (40 wins) v
Cambridge University (36 wins)
This afternoon at Twickenham the annual fixture which holds a special place in the affection of Rugby Union enthusiasts will be played before a capacity crowd. Like the Boat Race the Varsity Match creates a national interest which goes beyond personal connection with either of the universities. Many international players have made their debut here.

: A Question of Survival

Tuesday's Documentary
Two films which explore the 20th-century dilemma. 1: Public Poison
Should a scientist who believes that he has evidence in his hands of dangerous pollution speak out before the proof is conclusive and risk alarming the public? Or should he remain silent?
Three metals - mercury, lead and cadmium-that have no place in the human body are threatening the existence of human beings in several parts of the world. Fishermen in Japan and children in Missouri have suffered physical and mental illnesses attributed to metaUic poisoning. On the other side of the coin the resulting scare has put hundreds of fishermen out of work in Canada and America.
There is now evidence that we on this island might be running risks of similar poisoning. What would happen if we avoided the evidence and how big would be the price to pay if we heeded it too soon? Tonight's programme examines the consequences of man's interference with his environment.

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.
