The John Player League
Worcestershire v Gloucestershire Worcestershire, under the leadership of NORMAN GIFFORD , are proving to be the side to watch in the limited-over game. Their dramatic win over Lancashire in the Ben-son and Hedges Cup semi-final must rate as one of the most exciting sporting moments of 1973. Gloucestershire are still in touch with the League leaders and the skills of their South African all-rounder MIKE PROCTER are always a pleasure to watch.

: The World About Us

White Man in a Hole with Rena Briand
Opal fever has attracted fortune-seekers from all over the world to dig and burrow into the heart of Australia in search of the exquisite and timeless opal.
The world's richest opal field, Coober Pedy , lies in the middle of a vast sunburnt plain; the population live underground, like moles, sheltering from the heat, dust and flies. There are educated men and illiterate men, crooks, crackpots and vagabonds - all seized by the same insatiable hunger for opal.

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.
