Two totally new events for young 'sporties' with the National Mountain Bike Championships staged through the glorious terrain of the Derwent Valley in the Peak District.
And target bowls, a modern, colourful version of a traditional game. Sixteen 11-year-olds from eight counties have just three hours to learn the game. Next week they compete in the first Junior
Championship. But the other bowling sport - ten-pin - is thriving as never before and there's a report on Manchester's PeeWee League to prove it.

: The Mercer Play: In Two Minds

Fifth in a retrospective season of outstanding plays written for television by David Mercer
with Anna Cropper as Kate Winter

This powerful play from 1967 is Mercer's formidable study of schizophrenia. Kate, a young woman, is denied any expression of her own individuality by her repressive, suburban family. But the psychiatric methods of the time choose to ignore this important factor of mental illness.

: Esther Interviews ...

Meeting for the first time in nine years, Esther Rantzen and Sheena Easton have a lot of catching up to do. After her singing career was launched on BBCtv's Big Time, Sheena made pop history with her first two singles in the Top 10 at once. Since then, she has hit the really big time in America, with platinum records to her name. But everyone has problems: after two failed marriages she admits she's 'not a great judge of men'.
And why has success refused to come her way in Britain? Directed by ROBIN BEXTOR Producer DEBORAH PERKIN

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.
