for the BBC -2 Trophy
Commentator, Eddie Waring
Television presentation by Nick Hunter
Series producer, RAY Lakeland
For the first time since the inception of the BBC-2 Floodlit Competition four years ago, a Lancashire club will have its name on the trophy. For the first three years Castleford won 'the competition. With the last two Yorkshire clubs, Hull and Huddersfield, failing to stave off the challenge of Lancashire's dominance, the four semi-finalists were Wigan, Leigh, St. Helens, and Warrington. This year's competition has been the best so far with some good matches, good attendances, and excellent football.

Weltspiegel, Continents sans Visa A Toda Plana, Estajeta, Reatta
These are just some of the television programmes in both West and East Europe which regularly contribute to Europa. The programme has been called a European window on the world. Each week it looks at the stories and issues that have informed, entertained, and sometimes angered viewers across a continent.
It examines their attitudes and their prejudices and, in so doing, perhaps recognises some of our own.
Introduced this week by Jack Pizzey

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.
