South Africa v.
U.S.A. at Muirfield
Player, the reigning British Open Champion, won his first British Open at Muirfield. So did Nicklaus. Now these two great rivals, vividly contrasting in build and technique, who have both won the Open on each side of the Atlantic, return to these Scottish links for this special match. While the first prize is £ 10,000, a total of £ 16,000 is at stake.

A series of highly personal films
Rene Cutforth visits
Sweden, land of the VIKINGS

Through the long days of a Swedish summer ' to be flesh in contact with sun is to know fulfilment.' The landscape is breathtaking, and the blondes are the most beautiful in Europe.
René Cutforth, who describes himself loosely as ' one of nature's Swedes,' Lakes on the guise of a nordic storyteller to utter dark warnings for the Western World.
Quite recently they hare been set free from God and sin and poverty for a start, and it seems to me a very good start. But has it all left a vacuum?
The Swede has simply ironed himself right out in favour of some damned silly machine that works in a social way-he's a slide-rule
Produced and directed by CHRISTOPHER RALLING

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.

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.
