: A Fight to Remember

Introduced by Harry Carpenter.
The champion had held the title for seven years. He was known to be one of the toughest fighters ever; the challenger-just a smooth-talking bookworm. The fight was a foregone conclusion-or was it?
Philadelphia, September 23, 1926
Jack Dempsey v. Gene Tunney
It's a wise man who has taken his seat and settled down before the big fight starts. First rounds have been known to hold surprises. When the current world heavyweight champion shoots backwards out of the ring in the first round after dropping the challenger seven times, it becomes historic.
New York, September 14, 1923

: Whicker's World: The Beauty Queens

with Alan Whicker
What's a pretty girl like you... doing in a place like this?
The hair, massive and lacquered stiff -a solid, unmoving helmet, Make-up, heavy-a deep dusty coating, fanned by great remote-controlled eyelashes Waistline, unnaturally small and tight. Swimsuit, sculptured to emphasise endless thighs. The exposure, tremendous-it's got to be tremendous, for these are
The Beauty Queens
Tonight, to examine nature in the raw, we join these perambulating bathing-beauties, crowned and uncrowned, on and off the catwalk, to share their triumphs and defeats as they sway towards their ultimate trial-the day of Miss World!

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.
