Presented by Clare Balding. 140 Boxing Highlights of last night's bill-topping contest at
Liverpool Olympia for the vacant WBF super-flyweight title between local favourite Peter Culshaw and the current South African champion, Ncedo Cecane.
Also on the bill is former WBC super-middleweight champion Robin Reid. There's also the WBF Intercontinental middleweight title as Lee Blundell defends against Delroy Leslie. Commentary comes from Jim Neilly and Richie Woodhall.
2.30 Rugby Union Glasgow v Ulster Live coverage of this quarter-final in the Celtic League (kickoff 2.45pm).
Glasgow and Ulster were both semi-finalists last season.
Home advantage this time lies with the Scots, but Irish teams filled three of the four semi-final slots last season and having the likes of fly-half David Humphreys in their ranks will bolster hopes of reaching the same stage once again.

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.
