: International Golf: United States v The World: Bert Yancey v Bruce Crampton

After six matches of this 13-match series the scores are level. Now, at the foot of the Mountains of Mourne, two players and a course all new to US v World series
Bert Yancey (US) v Bruce Crampton (Australia) at Royal County Down, Newcastle, Northern Ireland

Crampton finished third, with $143,000 (£60,000), on the US money list last year - a remarkable achievement for a foreigner. A fierce competitor and stickler for the rule-book, he is not always popular among his American opponents, but they still voted him one of their players of the year. Today, he meets in Yancey a man who has twice been third in the US Masters and is one of the game's classic swingers.
Prize-money: $4,000 to the winner $2,000 to the loser.

: Wheelbase

Wheelbase covers the world of motoring.

Tonight a profile by Barrie Gill and Maxwell Boyd of 'Flying Scot' Jackie Stewart, fastest man in grand prix racing and motor sport's best-paid driver. Do his world-wide business interests, his own motor shows all over Europe and his much-publicised home life in Switzerland now threaten to overshadow his skill in the driving seat? What sort of home life does he have with only six days to himself a year?

Michael Frostick reports from Turin on the car of the week, the new Fiat 127, and test-drives this economical Italian family saloon in the foothills of the Alps.

: Hollywood Star Parade: The Tea House of the August Moon

Starring Marlon Brando, Glenn Ford, Machiko Kyo, Eddie Albert

When the American Army of Occupation sets about rehabilitating the Okinawan village of Tobiki it finds that American dynamism is no match for Japanese conservatism.
Marlon Brando, in one of his rare comedy roles, brings to the part of the wily interpreter, Sakini, much more than a mere comic characterisation.

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.
