England v Scotland Live coverage from
Twickenham of the Save and Prosper international in the Five Nations Championship
(kick-off at 2.45pm). The 110th meeting of the "auld enemy" brings the sides together to contest the Calcutta Cup for the 1 00th time. After home wins over Ireland and Wales,
Scotland look to end their Five
Nations season with a victory over the English that will not only ensure the Calcutta Cup but also an 11 th Triple Crown. A Scottish triumph would improve a dismal record at Twickenham and provide a fitting send-off for retiring coach Ian McGeechan. England will hope to prevent a first
Scottish victory on English soil for ten years and in doing so record their fourth consecutive victory in the fixture, something they haven't done for 36 years. Commentary by Bill McLaren and Bill Beaumont.
Wales v Ireland
Highlights of the Digital international from Cardiff at
4.15pm. After a defeat in Scotland, Wales return to the scene of their triumph over England in February to entertain Ireland. The Irish have a good record at the Arms Park and will look to record their fourth win in five outings there. By contrast, home fans will hope to inspire their side as they strive to register their first win over the Irish in Cardiff for ten years.
Commentary Nigel Starmer -Smith and Hugo MacNeill.

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.
