by BOB BLOCK starring Clive Dunn
Grandad is to judge the local beauty contest, but-if Mr Wat kins's niece doesn't win he's liable to stop Grandad's pay rise; if Dave Corby 's girlfriend doesn't win he's liable to stop his breathing; and if Mrs Brady 's granddaughter doesn't win she'll accuse Grandad publicly of fiddling the results!

: MacLeod in Japan

The second of three films: Sumo
An expectant roar goes up from the 5,000 crammed into the stadium. Across Japan, millions more sit transfixed in front of their televisions as two scantily-clad men, weighing 25 stones apiece charge each other across the earth ring. Seconds later, it's all over with the loser picking himself up from the dirt. To the newcomer, Sumo often seems ludicrous or repulsive. But Donny MacLeod soon finds himself enthralled by this ritualistic sport.

: The Wonderful World of Disney

Fly with Von Drake
Donald Duck 's voluble Uncle Ludwig expends as much hot air as any balloonist in recounting the fascinating history of flight, from the legendary but luckless Icarus to more successful outer space efforts. Orville the seagull provides some humorous but un-requested help in this funny though informative combination of cartoon and archive film.

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.
