Weatherman KEITH BEST

: The Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Championships

All of the top international tennis stars are in attendance at this the world's greatest Open championship.
The action starts at 2 o'clock on the famous Centre Court in Wimbledon 1975
JIMMY CONNORS begins the defence of his title in a championship full of intriguing and exciting possibilities. Former champions STAN SMITH and JAN KODES make no secret of their determination to win yet again. Ille Nastase, the brilliant Romanian who came so close to victory in the memorable 1972 Final, certainly has the talent to win, and if sentiment counts for anything at all, KEN ROSEWALL will once more summon all his reserves of energy and skill in search of the one major title that has eluded him. Many experts tip GUILLERMO VILAS to confirm his sensational form when he won the Masters Final in Australia, and what about BJORN BORG or ARTHUR ASHE or ... or? The winner will certainly deserve his £10,000 prize money.

The Battle of Ideas
Is Britain living through a crisis of capitalism, or, as sir KEITH JOSEPH believes, a crisis of socialism? A year ago today Sir Keith, the man charged by Tory Party leader, MARGARET THATCHER , with rethinking Conservative policies, launched what he describes as a ' Campaign for Capitalism.'
In his Campaign, Sir Keith has made an unprecedented attack on past Conservative governments for failing to challenge and reverse ' the foolish myths of postwar socialism that have eroded our liberties, frustrated endeavour, divided our people and destroyed the self-confidence of a once great nation.'
Is Sir Keith the man to bring the Tories in from the cold or is he, as some leading figures in his own party believe, an ivory tower intellectual who is out of touch with the harsh realities of Britain in 1975? David Dimbleby talks to
Rt Hon Sir Keith Joseph , mp and examines his ideas.

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.

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.
