The John Player League featuring today
Kent v Northamptonshire
Kent's hopes of taking the League title for the third year in succession took a severe blow when they lost to Yorkshire two weeks ago. They now must not only rely on their own abilities to win their remaining matches but also on the opponents of leaders Leicestershire to administer a defeat.
Northamptonshire are currently fourth in the table and Kent can afford no lapse in concentration this afternoon.

: The World About Us

The Other Iceland
Cod wars and volcanic eruptions have put Iceland on the front page: but there's another Iceland behind those headlines, the story of a people with a toe-hold on an inhospitable rock where only 1 per cent. is farmable. Living against these odds they've been forced to exploit: eider ducks, seabirds, whales and fish. But in general, over a thousand years, they've established a balance of which they're fiercely proud. Narrated and produced by BARRY PAINE

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.
