: Cricket: The John Player League: Lancashire v Yorkshire

The most compelling dramatist could not have written a more dramatic situation than that which faces Lancashire in their final League match of the season at Old Trafford today.
Finalists in next Saturday's Gillette Cup Final, among the front runners of the Championship proper, and for so long this season brilliantly defending their Player League title, they must today overcome none other than their most implacable opponents - Yorkshire - in order to bring them the first of the three titles.

During the tea interval, at approximately 4.0 pm, Lord's Taverner Trevor Bailey will read a selection from his own book The Greatest of My Time.

Frank Bough introduces the programme which includes news of all today's other fixtures.

: The World About Us: A Park in Peru...

where jaguars roam, free from the threat of skin collectors, and Indians are protected from civilisation if not from their neighbouring head-hunters.
Faced with a massive population explosion, Peru has plans for development and colonisation that will alter the face of the country, but conservationists have persuaded the government to set aside at least one patch of the wilderness.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
