: Golf: the Open

The greatest tournament in the world enters its third day on England's blustery and very unpredictable North West coast.
Thousand of fans have beaten a path to the Royal Liverpool Club at Hoylake to savour the mastery of pedigree players for whom winning and being awarded the famous Claret Jug is more important than the cash involved.
It was a different ball game when the Open was staged here last, back in 1967. Roberto deVicenzo was the winner and among those challenging had been Christy O'Connor , Kel Nagle , Jack Nicklaus ,
Tony Jacklin , Gary Player and young UK hopeful Clive Clark , who had an excellent round of 70 on the opening day.
Introduced by Gary Lineker with commentary by Wayne Grady and Sam Torrance , with reports by Hazel Irvine. Live coverage continues after the News. See Sunday's choice.

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.
