: Cricket The John Player League

Lancashire v Warwickshire
As the cricket season nears its completion Lancashire face the near incredible prospect of winning all three major England titles - the Championship, the Gillette Cup and the League. As defending title holders in the League they have maintained their ascendancy of last year to such an extent that they had only been beaten twice by the beginning of August - but in the last few weeks Warwickshire have emerged in the League as one of the counties likely to challenge them.
During today's tea interval, at approximately 4.0 pm, Lord's Taverner Eric Sykes will read extracts from Herbert Farjeon 's Cricket Bag.
Commentators at Old Trafford JOHN ARLOTT and JIM LAKER
FRANK BOUGH introduces the programme which includes news of all today's other cricket fixtures: Essex v Derbyshire
Gloucestershire v Kent
Hampshire v Glamorgan
Leicestershire v Northamptonshire Middlesex v Surrey
Nottinghamshire v Somerset Worcestershire v Yorkshire

: The World About Us

American Samoa -
Paradise Lost?
Samoa, a tropical paradise in the South Pacific, is now faced with an agonising challenge.
The challenge is what some people call Progress, in this case American-style, complete with camera-toting tourists, educational television in every classroom, and an expanding economy that may be in conflict with Samoan traditional values.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
