The 1973 Open Championship
Played over The Old Course, Troon.
From the year of its inception (1860) the British Open Championship was held for 12 consecutive years at Prestwick Golf Club, the near neighbour of Troon Golf Club. It was at Prestwick that the legendary Tom Morris Jr of St Andrews first won the Championship thrice in succession (1868, 69, 70) - 103 years later the mercurial Mexican LEE TREVINO goes for his hat-trick and the prestige of being only the fifth man in history to achieve this remarkable feat.

: The Burke Special

with James Burke
Ever thought about what you'd do if you were running the country? Or The Burke Special? Or the newspapers? That day may be closer than you think. Tonight JAMES BURKE talks himself out of a job from exactly 8.30.00 to exactly 8.59.30. Why? Because of the schedule, the fact that this paragraph has to run to exactly 74 words, we vote every five years, and when did you last really control your own life?

Our Oldest Ally
On the 600th anniversary of our alliance with Portugal, Prime Minister Marcello Caetano comes to Britain next week. MICHAEL COCKERELL reports on our allies now - a country where British families continue to make port, and the best bullfighter is black.
But Portugal's young men are sent to fight three wars in Africa, from Europe's poorest country. Of Portugal's critics Dr Caetano says: ' How nice to be a moralist ... to hold forth before dinner on how things should be ordered in the best of all possible worlds.

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.
