On only his third climb,
Peter Duncan tries the Old
Man of Stoer. Over 40 metres high, it's shorter than its famous cousin at Hoy, and getting to it involves an icy swim across a channel.
With Everest mountaineer Doug Scott as his guide,
Peter climbs up one of the most difficult and beautiful rocks in Britain that only
20 years ago was considered unclimbable.

: XIII Commonwealth Games: The Opening Ceremony

In the presence of HRH The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh
The BBC welcomes you to the XIII Commonwealth Games in Edinburgh.
For the first time the BBC has produced a 45-minute display as part of the pomp and formality of the Opening Ceremony. It is a display that celebrates Spirit of Youth, symbolised by the 6,500 schoolchildren who promise to make this an entertainment to remember. In song and dance, specially commissioned for the occasion, they bring you a display that is both Scottish in flavour and international. From contemporary dance routines to the strains of a modern orchestra, and the very finest in Scottish
Highland dancing to massed Pipes and drums, to country dancing with a fiddle band led by Yehudi Menuhin.
Following this display is the arrival of the teams of the Commonwealth nations competing in the Games, before The Queen's Message is run into Meadowbank Stadium to be read by HRH The Duke of Edinburgh, who will then declare the XIII Commonwealth Games open.

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.
