: Rugby Special The County Championship

Introduced by CLIFF MORGAN Devon v Somerset at the Recreation Ground, Torquay Devon, a county too long in the doldrums of rugby, have this year adopted a positive coaching policy and today's side will be chosen from an initially selected squad of 35 players. Their game is based on fast, open rugby and built round a light but mobile pack. A win today against a strong Somerset side could give them the confidence in their endeavour to eclipse their more re-_ nowned Cornish neighbours in the South-Western Division of the Championship.

: Tutankhamen Post-mortem

In 1922 Howard Carter and Lord Carnarvon came upon one of the most spectacular of all archaeological discoveries, the almost untouched tomb of an ancient Egyptian pharaoh. After four years' intensive work the treasure was removed to the National Museum in Cairo, but the mummy of the pharaoh was resealed in its coffin in the tomb.
Now, for the first time since 1926, the coffin has been reopened so that a scientific X-ray study of the mummy could be made by a team led by Professor R. G. Harrison of the Department of Human Anatomy, Liverpool University.
The whole of the reopening, the X-ray process, and the interpretation of the results was filmed, to add yet another chapter to the extraordinary story of the young king who was buried some 3,300 years ago in mysterious circumstances in the Valley of Kings in Egypt.

: Review

The weekly arts magazine presented by James Mossman
Renaissance: A new pop group, but with a difference. Renaissance is made up of people from older, first generation groups, who joined forces, they say, so as to make their money in greater personal freedom. The result is some splendid music.
Poet at Work: Britain's most illustrious poet, W. H. Auden , comes to the Review studio to read from his latest work.
Eighty Years On: Novelist and playwright Enid Bagnold , who talks to James Mossman , broke the taboo of upperclass Edwardian England. Today at 80 she is still as free in her mind as many of those who might think they have left her behind.

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.
