: Sunday Cricket: Cambridge University (Past and Present) v. Oxford University (Past and Present)

featuring today:
A forty-over match for a purse of £50 between
Cambridge University (Past and Present) and Oxford University (Past and Present)

The history of cricket will forever acknowledge the contribution made to the game by our two premier universities. 'The Parks' at Oxford and 'Fenners' at Cambridge have produced some of the most illustrious cricketers of all time -
players who have gone on to represent every major cricketing country in the world.

In today's special match the combinations of players drawn from these ranks and the current University sides should provide a fascinating study of varying techniques within the context of the now proven formula of a limited over match.
The commentators at Fenners: John Arlott, Peter West, Jim Laker
The programme, players, and personalities introduced by Frank Bough

: A Bronze Mask

A film in elegy for Dylan Thomas

Thomas held that a man's poems - if they are good poems - are always older than himself, that sometimes they are ageless and that such agelessness has a place in all true works of art.
The death mask of the poet stands on a pedestal in the National Museum of Wales, and in the galleries about it there are paintings and pieces of sculpture-and exhibits in the departments of Natural History and Archaeology -that are as a counterpoint to Thomas's basic themes: love, war, and death, and the loss of childhood innocence.
In this film, images of these exhibits together with pictures of West Wales where the poet spent the most fruitful years of his life accompany...

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.
