: Rugby Special 1871-1971: RFU Centenary Year series

The International Championship England v France Scotland v Ireland
Today's two matches represent the halfway stage of the Championship : at Twickenham thousands of French supporters must have hoped that England's resurgence against Ireland will not have continued to blight their title aspirations for the second year running; whilst at Murrayfield Scotland must have taken the field wondering just what they had to do to gain a championship point when, after great performances against France and Wales, they found themselves in isolation at the bottom of the table.

: Cameron Country Prejudice: On the Face of It

James Cameron 's own series of documentary films
As a person I feel extremely violent, extremely violent. This is not part of a congenital or inborn trait, it is the conditions under which I live. I need to argue, I need to scream: that is the position that British society has placed me in (A BLACK MILITANT) Britain's colonial past has come home to roost. Black people are amongst us. James Cameron set out to discover from London's West Indians what they feel about the white society they live in. Prejudice, almost wholly unconscious, seems to be driving English society towards the precipice. Perhaps a clue may lie in the way we define ourselves ...
(Cameron as seen by Cutforth: pp 6-7)

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

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.
