: RUGBY SPECIAL

Introduced by Cliff Morgan
HAWICK v. CLONTARFF
The recent international flavour of the series is retained today in this fixture between two of the oldest clubs in Scotland and Ireland.
Hawick was formed in 1873 and since then they have been regarded as perhaps the strongest club in Border rugby, who have produced, through the ages, many great International players. They have won the Scottish Club Championship more often than any other club in the post-war period.
Clontarff, on the other hand, was founded in 1876 and has earned the reputation of being one of the most competent club sides in Leinster. They have supplied many caps for Ireland and are the only side ever to have beaten a New Zealand side in Ireland.

: CHRONICLE

Lord Elgin and the Parthenon with Magnus Magnusson
Every traveller coming added to the general defacement of the statuary within his reach. It was no part of my original plan to bring away anything but my models.
It was with these words in 1816 that Lord Elgin argued his case for having removed many of the finest sculptures from the Parthenon. The controversy surrounding the ' 'Elgin Marbles' and whether they should be returned to Greece has raged ever since.
The stcry of how Lord Elgin secured them, of Byron's vicious attack upon him, and of the Earl's subsequent ruin is told by Magnus Magnusson.

: RELEASE

The weekly arts magazine
ONCE UPON A WALL
In what may well prove to be one of the most important art exhibitions of the century, the Hayward Gallery shows some seventy examples of Italian fresco painting from Giotto to Pontormo. The exhibition opens on April 3 and has already travelled to New York and Amsterdam.
Release includes an American film of the extraordinary process by which these precious wall paintings were saved from irreparable damage after the tragic floods of 1966. FIVE THOUSAND POUNDS FOR A NOVEL
The largest-ever literary award in Britain is to be given in April to the author of the best novel published in 1968. This week the short-list of six novelists is published. Booker McConnell , in conjunction with The Publishers Association, allowed Release, in strict confidence, to be privy to the secret deliberations of the panel of experts and to know in advance the names of the last six so that a series of short biographical and critical films could be prepared in advance.
The first of four Release programmes tonight introduces this exciting literary suspense story. In future weeks all six novelists will appear on Release.

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.
