A series of eight films 5: Chopped
'As a boy I used to sit at the end of the runway watching the planes land and take off.'
Already in trouble before going solo, the first flying casualty finds the pressures building up. He becomes very good at everything except the landing. The last vital 300 feet before touchdown prove impossible for him to master. His eye and hand co-ordination are just not good enough to acquire the right instinctive feel, which all pilots need. He has to leave.

The Great White Hope
There have been only two white World Heavyweight Champions in the last 50 years - Rocky Marciano, and Ingemar Johansson of Sweden. Since 1959 many have tried and failed but now a genuine prospect has emerged.
GERRY COONEY of New York has won all of his 25 fights, 21 inside the distance, and for months now he has waged a war of words with WBC champion LARRY HOLMES. Cooney is a big man - 6ft 5ins and 16 stone - and is a real threat to the crown of Holmes.

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.
