: The Golden Fiddle

Every year hundreds of fiddlers from all over Scotland meet for a weekend of traditional music-making-the climax being a gala concert, led by a massed orchestra of 250 fiddlers conducted by ex-Glasgow policeman Jimmy Moir.
Among the highlights is the presentation of the Daily Record Golden Fiddle to Scotland's new champion traditional fiddler, who will play his winning selection.
Fulton Mackay presents excerpts from this spectacular event which this year was held in the Music Hall, Aberdeen.

Live at 11.5
Argentina v Hungary
Exclusive live coverage, by satellite from the River Plate Stadium, Buenos Aires, of today's top match - the eagerly-awaited first clash between South America and Europe. How will the volatile Argentinians fare in the explosive World Cup atmosphere against the fancied Hungarians, who have qualified for the first time since 1966?
Both countries have reached the World Cup Final in previous competitions but neither has won the trophy. Argentina lost 4-2 to Uruguay in the first World Cup in 1930, while Hungary have been losing finalists twice: in 1938 they lost 4-2 to Italy in Paris, and in 1954 3-2 to West Germany in Berne.

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.
