: Rugby Union Football: Scotland v. New Zealand

From the Murrayfield Ground, Edinburgh.
At the time of going to press (before the Scotland-Welsh International on January 30), the Scottish team has had a long run of defeats while the New Zealanders, with victory against Ireland already to their credit, are likely to start as firm favourites.
This season the Scottish selectors have been putting the emphasis on weight, so that the New Zealanders should at least be matched stone for stone forward. There is always the possibility .that the Scottish side will pull off a surprise victory, as they did at Murrayfield in 1951 when they won their international with Wales by 20 points to 0.

: Children's Television: Sugar and Spice

A mixed bag of entertainment, interest, and a thrilling new serial.
Introduced by John Hewer.

The Lost Planet: 3: Vermin of the Skies
by Angus MacVicar.
Adapted by the author.

Jeremy Grant, from Australia, came to stay with his scientist uncle in Scotland and soon discovered that there were "queer things happening at Inverard." Uncle Lachlan had built a space ship to journey to 'Hesikos' the lost planet and the time for take-off was very near. Kurt Oppenheim, a spy employed by Hermanoff (a rival scientist), was caught attempting sabotage and Jeremy managed to persuade his uncle to allow him to join the crew in place of the traitor. After near disaster at the last minute the command 'switch to jets' was given, and the journey to Hesikos started.

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.
