: Equestrian Cross-country

from Hickstead
In 1974, on a crisp Good Friday morning, the first-ever equestrian cross-country team event was staged over the outer reaches of The All England Jumping Club. Four years later the new sport has mushroomed so quickly that more than 100 events will be staged in this country alone.
This morning 20 teams of five, drawn from every branch of equestrianism, returned to the sport's birthplace to compete against the clock over an ' honest' mile-and-a. half course.

: The Late Film: Stavisky

Jean-Paul Belmondo Charles Boyer
Sacha Stavisky was a gambler and a swindler who sold millions of francs worth of valueless bonds to French workers. When the scandal broke, over 40 years ago, it rocked France, brought down the government, and almost destroyed the country's parliamentary system. Alain Resnais 's film, being shown tonight in an English version, is not about the Stavisky Affair , but about the man himself who became a legend in his own lifetime.

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.
