: Rugby Special: The International Championship 1968-69: Wales v. Ireland

Introduced by Cliff Morgan

At the historic Cardiff Arms Park the all-conquering Irish - undefeated in four International matches this season - face the final hurdle in their bold bid to win the Triple Crown for the first time since 1949 and the International Championship title which they last won in 1951. And news today of the other big Rugby Union interest in the West where across the Bristol Channel, in a setting far removed from the glamour of the Arms Park, 10,000 partisan Cornishmen packed into the tiny club ground at Redruth will be urging Cornwall to victory over Lancashire in the Final of the County Championship, an honour Cornwall last won in 1908.

The Smuggled Masterpiece
Unpublished in Russia, hailed as a masterpiece in the West, Cancer Ward, Part 2 was published in this country last Thursday. Solzhenitsyn's earlier book The
First Circle is claimed by critics to be the greatest Russian novel of this century, and the first part of Cancer Ward increased his reputation here.
James Mossman investigates the extraordinary circumstances of the journey of these manuscripts to Britain, and talks to some of the people closely involved.

Victor Pasmore
Victor Pasmore already had a high reputation behind him when, in the mid-1940s, he turned to abstract painting. His present exhibition at the Marlborough New London Gallery marks another turning-point in that for the first time it includes free-standing sculpture.
He talks to Robert Hughes

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.
