: Rugby Special: The International Rugby Season 1968-69

It was a season of unforgettable International Rugby. France, holders of the Championship, crashed to defeat, while Wales in Investiture Year took the title and the Triple Crown. Ireland's spectacular run of victories, only going down to Wales, so nearly brought them international honours; and Budge Rogers overhauled Lord Wakefield's record number of caps for England in a XV playing bright open rugby.
Cliff Morgan looks back on a memorable season and introduces excerpts from the International matches of 1968-69.

: One Pair of Eyes: The Unreal Image

Tonight, in this series of highly personal films, author and journalist David Holden argues that modern communications don't necessarily communicate any better than the old.

Television, radio, computers, and jet aeroplanes may seem to bring the world to our hearthrug but they also increase the danger of mistaking the image for reality. The volume of today's instant words and pictures is so overwhelming that, to make sense of them, we take refuge in stereotype attitudes, rely on new myths - and in doing so, we erect still more unreal images of the world

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.
