: Golf: The Open Cricket: Second Test

Golf: The Open Championship from the Turnberry Hotel, Ayrshire Introduced by HARRY CARPENTER The second round
The magnificent setting of this course is a fitting background for the world's top golfers competing to qualify for the third round of this classic 72-hole championship.
Cricket: Second Test
England v Australia from Old Trafford Over the years the Old
Trafford test has contributed more than its fair share of drama -Jim Laker 's 19 wickets in 1956 is one cricketing statistic almost certain to last for ever; Richie Benaud 's decision to bowl round the wicket in 1961 ensured Australia retained ' the Ashes' and led to Brian Close 's banishment from the test match scene.
JIM LAKER and RICHIE BENAUD will be in the commentary box, where they will be joined by Australia's last captain, IAN CHAPPELL. Introduced by PETER WEST

: The Whole Universe Show

Eight different answers to the question Where Do I Come From? starting from the beginning of time.
Timeslice 1: The Big Bang
Ultimately, the atoms we're all made of come from a unique event which happened about 15,000 million years ago in the middle of an infinity of nothing. The Universe was born as a colossal creation of energy and has been expanding at the speed of light ever since.
Twelve kids who want to know where they come from take a dash through the universe on board the Whole Universe Machine, which gives them the straight facts, a few cosmic jokes and connects them by live video-link to an expert astronomer.
Their guide to the Whole Universe is Ian McNaught-Davis with Dr Ron Maddison of Keele University.

The arts in action
Introduced by Humphrey Burton
The first of two programmes devoted to festivals. Tonight: Unita
Every year in Italy there are some 6,000 UNITA festivals, promoted by the country's leading Communist newspaper L'Unita. The festivals range from village celebrations to massive jamborees. One city is chosen for a national UNITA festival and last summer it was the town of Naples, which played host to folk singers, dancers, to members of the Bolshoi, to the theatrical troop of Eduardo de Filippo, the Neapolitans' favourite hero, to Enrico Berlinguer, the Italian Communist leader, and to an audience of nearly a million people. and by way of contrast: Bach at Tilford
In a little village in Surrey, and in an atmosphere of rural tranquillity, there is a regular music festival built around the music of Johann Sebastian Bach. It is organised by the conductor Denys Darlow and this is its silver jubilee year.

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.
