Final of the County
Championship 1967-68
S.E. Division Champions
Midland Division Champions
Keith Macklin reports from Twickenham
Directed by ALAN MOUNCER
Warwickshire are favourites to regain the championship they won no less than seven times between
1958 and 1965. Middlesex can be impressive, but they were a little lucky to beat Durham in the semi-final. They will be hard pushed to match Warwickshire's formidable all-round talents.

Suddenly I Know What I Have to Do...
"I started on what stone I could get at night in my little studio in Chelsea. Then I thought suddenly I know what I have to do. I feel I can do it. I'm completely happy."
A film on the great English sculptor Dame Barbara Hepworth whose major retrospective exhibition opens next week at the Tate Gallery, London, and whose life and work are described in a new book published this week.

Tolkien in Oxford
A film about The Lord of the Rings
In Europe and Asia it's a school set book. In America it's a craze bigger than Batman: one million copies sold in 1967 alone. In Britain a lot of people have never even heard of it. J.R.R. Tolkien, seventy-six, retired Oxford don, talks about his major work. Readers in Oxford try to explain the phenomenon of the lord of the hobbits, the orcs, and the elves. A literary masterpiece or a pleasant donnish joke?


Interviewee (Suddenly I Know What I Have to Do...): Dame Barbara Hepworth
Director (Suddenly I Know What I Have to Do...): Colin Nears
Interviewee (Tolkien in Oxford): J.R.R. Tolkien

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.
