Leeds v Castleford
Live coverage from Headingley (kick-off at 3.00pm) of an intriguing third-round contest in the Silk Cut Challenge Cup, between Leeds, second favourites for the cup, and Castleford, last year's beaten finalists. Leeds last won the cup 15 years ago and have not reached this stage since 1989. Under coach Doug Laughton they will be looking to improve on this record and with players of the calibre of Ellery Hanley and Garry Schofield could do so. Castleford, like Leeds, are riding high in the league at the moment and coach Daryl Van de Velde is hoping the experience of Graham Steadman and Lee Crooks will take them to victory over their Yorkshire rivals.
Commentary by Ray French .

This year's tournament once again has them seeded to reach today's final as they look to secure their seventh world championship together. Commentary by David Rhys-Jones and Jimmy Davidson.

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.
