: RUGBY SPECIAL

Introduced by Cliff Morgan
NORTHAMPTON v. COVENTRY
Northampton, defeated earlier this season by today's visitors, take on a strong Coventry side who can call on the services of three of last Saturday's England three-quarter line. Great English internationals of the past such as Jeeps, Butterfield, and White have all worn the Northampton jersey; and what Scotsman — or Englishman, for that matter-will ever forget Andy Hancock 's* superb last-minute try to foil Scotland in the Calcutta Cup at Twickenham in 1965. The present Northampton side is also a force to be reckoned with. On the first of this month they provided no fewer than eleven players for the East Midlands in the county match against Cornwall, and three of their current side appeared for England last week in Dublin.

: ONE PAIR OF EYES

A series of highly personal films
Marjorie Proops says ROMANCE IS DEAD - LONG LIVE ROMANCE
Romance stopped being romantic when they all started calling it sex.
Women are no longer treated as the gentle sex; chivalry is old hat; it's 'Happy now - to hell with ever after.' Marjorie Proops, Britain's best-known woman columnist, lays bare our unromantic age, and yet she believes that deep down there's a bit of romance left in all of us.
Executive producer, ANTHONY DE LOTBINIERE

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.
