Cliff Michelmore introduces the first of three programmes about ships, boats, and the sea.
Tonight: Ocean Racing
The Admiral's Cup, the most coveted prize in ocean racing, was awarded in 1971 to a British team led by MR EDWARD HEATH in his yacht Morning Cloud. This summer, at Cowes Week, the world's best crews line up against each other once again to contest this world championship of ocean racing. Will the trophy stay in Britain? The Prime Minister's sailing-master OWEN PARKER says why he believes Mr Heath will win again.
On the spectacular 600-mile race from Sydney to Hobart, BOB FISHER follows the three Australian yachts chosen for the Admiral's Cup and weighs up their chances over here.
And at Cowes and Lymington, boat-builders WILFRED SOUTER and DAVID MAY take the covers off some of their Admiral's Cup contenders for 1973.

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.

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.
