The 93rd Varsity Match Oxford v Cambridge
Cambridge, under captain STEVB WARLOW , are the likely favourites with their brilliant back division which includes English International PETER WARFIELD and All Black MIKE O'CALLAGHAN , as well as two members of the England Under 23 squad, RICHARD HARDING and ALAN WORDSWORTH. But Oxford's captain CHARLES KENT , also an England Under 23 player, is hopeful that his more powerful pack can deny Cambridge possession and prove that the result of today's game is far from a foregone conclusion.

with Denholm Elliott The Iron Man by TED HUGHES
No one knew where the Iron Man came from. At first he was feared because he was so large - a huge formidable figure, taller than a house. But gradually the people accepted him and even gave him all the scrap iron he needed for food. In desperation, the people asked the Iron Man to help.

: The Mighty Continent

A View of Europe in the Twentieth Century
A television history in 13 parts Written and narrated by John Terraine
With personal comments by Peter Ustinov
5: This Generation has No Future The crises come to fruition and we witness the first of the two catastrophes in this century which were to drain away all Europe's might. We examine the working out of the new 20th-century style of war - war conducted with all the technological apparatus of the First Industrial Revolution.
This is a war of mass-production, of mass-armies - and, naturally, of mass-casualties. It is a huge act of attempted European suicide, and when it ends after four-and-a-half years of unprecedented slaughter, well may a despairing German officer say: ' This generation has no future, and deserves none. Anyone who belongs to it lives no more.'

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.
