: Rugby Special

Introduced by CLIFF MORGAN The South African Tour of the British Isles 1969/70
Barbarians v South Africa
The final match of the Sixth Springboks - a tour that has been a mixture of classical rugby skills, basic rugby faults, and controversy. A feature of the tour has been the partial eclipse of South Africa's long-standing supremacy in world rugby.
Today's match against the Barbarians - famed for the open, exciting quality of their play-is the Springboks' last chance to restore their reputation before they depart for South Africa and the forthcoming ' World Championship ' series against New Zealand. Commentator at Twickenham

: The Philpott File

A series of film reports by Trevor Philpott
The File on Living Off the Land
The farmers of Britain are filling the streets with protest and threatening to withhold payment of their taxes unless the Government gives a more favourable Price Review.
They claim that there is no longer a fair living to be made off the land. Yet good farm land is now so expensive that a farmer must be either a very rich or very brave man.
Living Off the Land is a study of some of the richest and some of the bravest men who choose to live by farming Britain's pricey soil. The film contrasts the lives of two small men trying to make a go in mid-Wales and three of the biggest farmers in Britain - with huge acreages in Lincolnshire, large personal establishments, and complex business organisations.
The experiences of these five help to throw some light on the difficulties facing farming today.

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.
