: Rugby Special

Introduced by CLIFF MORGAN England v South Africa
When England last faced a touring side-the Sixth All-Blacks in November 1967 -they were swamped 23-11 by a brand of Rugby which, whilst it became the trademark of the New Zealanders, also revolutionised the training and selection of England's International squad.
This afternoon at Twickenham these new methods were put to their first major test against a South African XV who have recently discovered their true International form.

The Treasures from the Sacred Well
Introduced by MAGNUS MAGNUSSON With DR ERIC THOMPSON and NORMAN SCOTT
Into this pool they had the custom to throw live men in times of drought ... if this land has had gold in it, it is in this pool that most of it would be (Bishop
Diego de Landa, c 1560 AD)
The words of the first bishop of Yucatan have attracted many to the Sacred Well at ChichSn Itza - the great Maya city which now lies in ruins in the Yucatan peninsula of Mexico.
Tonight Chronicle comes from the City Museum in Birmingham, where finds from the Sacred Well are on display - flown specially to Britain for the first time.

: Review

The weekly arts magazine presented by James Mossman
Hockney's Television: Pop artist David Hockney likes to watch television. But all he ever sees is the test card, because he works when the programmes are on. He considers television to be the. great educator, and would like to see it ' properly ' used: with continuous transmissions on 30 channels, freedom -from commercials and political pressures, endless variety, something for everybody.
Radn6ti: I wanted to be free all my life-and guards escorted me along the road' ... Miklos Radndti , an outstanding modern Hungarian poet, was killed by the Nazis 25 years ago. His life, death, his poetry are powerful indictments against man's bestiality to man: they add up to a plea for being human.
Alan Bates tells the story of Radnoti and reads some of his poems.
Directed by ROBERT VAS

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.
