: Saturday Night Clive

In the last programme in the series, Lenny Henry is Clive James 's studio guest. The crucial comedian's wild sense of humour remains in perfect working order in spite of receiving star treatment in Hollywood when he was filming True Identity, and going straight in the recent BBCtv production Alive and Kicking. James takes a wry look at the world's small screens and gives his own unique interpretations of the week's international news, while commentators and celebrity guests beam in by satellite from around the world.

: Snooker

The final of the UK
Championship from the Guild Hall , reston.P David Vine presents frames 8 to 14, as the long struggle continues for one of snooker's most illustrious titles. At this stage in last year's final, Stephen Hendry had got off to a flying start taking six of the first seven frames.
However, it was not a true indicator of the drama to come: the Scot only clinching the title 16-15 in the deciding frame.
For the finalists, tonight's is the sixth match in two weeks of competition. Concentration, willpower and stamina are now as important as talent as they strive towards the 16 frames required for victory.

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.
