: Rugby Safari: The British Isles Rugby Union Tour of South Africa

The Final Test Match: South Africa v. The British Lions
Cliff Morgan reports from Johannesburg.

Ellis Park, Johannesburg, is the largest Rugby stadium in the world and just over 100,000 people are expected to this the last match of the 1968 British Lions tour.
It is thirty years since the British Lions won a final test in South Africa. The present team has been playing rugby since last September and, understandably, will be feeling the strain of such a long period without a rest. But they will no doubt reflect that for three months they will have experienced one of the greatest honours any British rugby player would wish to achieve - to play for his country in an overseas tour.

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.
