: Golf

The 1973 Open Championship
Played over The Old Course, Troon.
The original field of 154 competitors is today reduced to 80 and those tying for 80th place after the previous 36 holes. With a prize list which even guarantees £1,000 to the player finishing as low as 15th, the competitive tussle amongst world golf's superstars begins in earnest in this third crucial round. It was in this round last year that the eventual winner, Lee Trevino , playing with Britain's own Tony Jacklin , electrified the golfing world with his incredible run of five straight ' birdies ' from the 14th hole that gave him the foundation of his winning score.

: Preston Sturges: Sullivan's Travels

Joel McCrea
Veronica Lake
One of Hollywood's top comedy directors, John L. Sullivan , decides to inject some realism into his work and tries to live the life of a tramp. His first efforts meet with hilarious failure but later events take a more serious turn.
Produced at the peak of Preston Sturges 's brilliant career it is considered by many to be his best picture - a bitter sweet combination of comedy and satire.

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.
