The John Player League Worcestershire v Northamptonshire from Stourbridge
Worcestershire have found North-ants to be a bit of a bogey team: in three years of the competition they have been unable to score a victory, yet they are a strong side and current holders of the John Player Trophy.
Northamptonshire are also well endowed with top players: their talented Indians, slow left-arm bowler Bedi and Mushtaq, the first batsman to score 1,000 runs this year, will provide very stiff opposition.

: The World About Us: Operation Seashore

Anthony Smith took a boat, a group of friends and six months off to quest for the odd, the diverting and the picturesque around the shores of our island: a gannet colony here and a story of salvage there, an account of French invasion in Pembroke and a folktale of cannibalism in Scotland. Like the coastline itself, a pot-pourri of humour and adventure, sea and sand, stories and song.

Parade starring and
Erik Satie , French composer, born 1866, died in Paris 1925. This entertainment for TV is more about Satie's mental landscape and less about dates and places. His life was an elaborate expression of surrealism. In this fantasy Satie (hammer in pocket) and Socrates (Greek tourist) walk across Paris together. The dialogues, based on Satie's own words have been written by BASIL DEANE , and present an inner portrait of this complex personality.

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.
