: International Golf: United States v The World: Arnold Palmer v Bernard Gallacher

The score stands at United States 4, The World 5.
Arnold Palmer (US) v Bernard Gallacher (Scotland) at Turnberry

Experience v youth in this tenth match. Palmer, 41, went top of the 1971 world money list a few weeks ago when he won his second tournament within a month to refute critics who believed he was finished. Gallacher, 22, is striving to recapture his 1969 brilliance when he topped the British order of merit and beat Lee Trevino in the Ryder Cup.
Prize-money: $4,000 to the winner $2,000 to the loser

: Hollywood Star Parade: A Very Special Favour

Starring Rock Hudson, Leslie Caron, Charles Boyer
with Walter Slezak, Dick Shawn

A French lawyer visiting America for a reunion with his daughter discovers she is a successful psychoanalyst, nearly 30 - and still a spinster. To any French father this is an unthinkable situation, so he finds a uniquely qualified man to help his daughter discover herself as a woman.
Charles Boyer and Leslie Caron give a strong French accent to this comedy film with Rock Hudson as the American who seems to be able to beat most Frenchmen at their own national sport.

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.

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.
