Golf: The Open Championship 1973
Played over The Old Course, Troon, where 11 years ago this week that legendary figure of modern professional golf, Arnold Palmer , won his second consecutive British Open Championship. In so doing he established the record low winning aggregate score for the Championship: 276 (71, 69, 67, 69) which stands to this day.
The illustrious field of about 150 golfers includes the defending Champion LEE TREVINO , JACK NICK -LAUS, DOUG SANDERS , GARY PLAYER, BOB CHARLES , Britain's TONY JACK LIN and PETER OOSTERHUIS , and the new us Open Champion JOHNNY MILLER. Today they set out with Palmer on their quest for this year's title plus the £50,000 prize money; they will do well even to equal that score over a course regarded as one of the supreme tests of world golf.

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.
