The John Player League
Somerset v Essex: direct from the Recreation Ground, Bath
Essex, runners-up to Worcester-shire last year by the most slender of margins, have not yet settled down in this year of rain-affected matches. However, it is still early days and while this experienced side begins to make its presence felt in the League, their West Indian all-rounder Keith Boyce is already among the leaders in the individual batting and bowling awards.
BRIAN CLOSE, now captain of Somerset and much admired by his new followers, is hoping in return for the warmth of the welcome to bring a title to the West Country. During the tea interval at 4.10* Profile of a Cricketer

: The World About Us

The Last Tribes of Mindanao Narrator LESLIE NIELSON
The exciting story of Tao Bong , ' The Good Man,' filmed in the jungles of the Philippine island of Mindanao.
Tao Bong is MANUEL ELIZADE , a wealthy young Philippine businessman who got his nickname from the poor primitive peoples whom he has helped. What happens to primitive men and women when so-called civilisation encroaches upon their territory is well known: they are badgered, exploited, hunted like animals - at best enslaved and frequently exterminated. But not if Manuel Elizade can prevent it, even though it frequently means at the risk of his life.

: Tutankhamun's Egypt

13: The Life and Times of Tutankhamun
Tonight's final programme of the series looks at the life and times of Tutankhamun himself. The discovery of his treasure-filled tomb made this King
world-famous.
He is the one Ancient Egyptian that everyone has heard of. But paradoxically, the details of his life are harder to make out than those of many another, less well known pharaoh.
His was a short and not very glorious reign in a troubled time, and a lot of detective work has been needed to piece together the facts about him -as they are presented in tonight's programme.
Introduced by Cyril Aldred from the Tutankhamun Exhibition at the British Museum Narrator Eric Porter
Director PAUL JORDAN

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.

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.
