Rugby League
Dewsbury v Featherstone Rovers In their first League fixture of the new season, reigning League champions DEWSBURY meet the Challenge Cup Winners, FEATHERSTONE ROVERS, at Dewsbury.
Commentator EDDIE WARING says: 'Star of Dewsbury's championship win against Leeds was their captain Mick Stephenson , but he will not be playing today -for Dewsbury have sold him to Penrith, an Australian club, for a world record fee of £20,000. With a Test series here in November against the Australians, all players will be keen to show early form and attract the attention of the International selectors. Featherstone star Steve Nash is the present Great Britain scrum-half, who was a big success in Britain's World Cup win in France.'

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.
