A double bill of international boxing, introduced by Desmond Lynam. Frank Bruno v
John Emmen
Live from London's Royal Albert Hall, Frank Bruno, who was 30 last week, resumes his boxing career after a gap of over two-and-a-half years. Since his heroic but unsuccessful challenge for the World Heavyweight title, Bruno has been concentrating on affairs away from the ring. Now, after reassurances about his formerly troublesome eye problem, pantomime's "Genie of the Lamp" has had his own wish granted by the British Boxing Board of Control, and is all set for a third attempt at world title glory. Bruno's record of 32 wins in 35 fights compares favourably with that of his Dutch opponent John Emmen, who has had 16 wins in 18 professional contests.
John Mugabi v Gerald McClellan
Also on the bill, Ugandan-born Mugabi meets American McClellan for the vacant WBO Middleweight title.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
