: International Golf: The 1972 United States Masters Tournament

Played at the Augusta National Golf Club, Georgia.

The climax of this major classic in which the world's greatest golfers competed for the 36th American Masters title.
As an event it holds a very special place in the affections of the world's golfers because of the man who was so closely associated with it for 35 years - the immortal Bobby Jones. Though his death last year will have saddened many, the prestige and honour of his legacy, 'The Masters,' will be proudly borne by the winner of this world classic tournament.
Introduced by Harry Carpenter
Presented in collaboration with CBS.

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.
