: Cricket: Second Test

The Cornhill Insurance Test Series
England v New Zealand from Trent Bridge
The Nottingham Test during New Zealand's last tour nearly produced one of the most surprising turn-ups in cricket history when New Zealand, set to score 479 to win in the fourth innings, failed by only 38 runs. Bev Congdon was their leading scorer with 176 and today, at the age of 40, he is the veteran in a team that hopes to do even better.

: The Songwriters

The last programme in the series chronicles the emergence of the saviours of the English Musical, Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber
Written by TONY STAVEACRE
The partnership was formed in 1965; the first fruit was a musical about Dr Barnardo, which was never produced. Then they struck gold, with Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, which led in turn to Jesus Christ Superstar and finally to Evita which opened in London eight weeks ago to rave reviews.
Tonight's programme charts their progress, with musical illustrations from every stage of their career: including the very first song ' Love is Here ' - selections from all their musicals (including Andrew's Jeeves) - a song for Elvis, and a song for Bing (by Tim Rice and Marvin Hamlisch ).
The songs are sung, and the story is told, by The Songwriters' resident company: Paul Jones Peter Blake , Stephen Leigh Colin Bennett , Vicki Brown
Marti Webb , Sheila White
Plus a guest appearance by ANDREW LLOYD WEBBER at the piano, and TIM RICE in a straw boater.

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.
