Gloucestershire v Cornwall at the Memorial Ground, Bristol
Gloucestershire have the most remarkable record in the County Championship having been in the final for the last five years, and are the current holders of the title.
Cornwall last appeared in a final six years ago, but in their match with Gloucestershire last year were narrowly defeated 9-7 having had numerous penalty chances and a disallowed try which would certainly have reversed the result. Commentator

: Balanchine Festival

Choreographer GEORGE MELITONO-VITCH BALANCHIVADZE - it was Diaghilev who shortened that long Georgian name to the now famous and familiar George Balan chine. This is the first of four programmes devoted to works by him, performed by the company with which he is so closely identified, the New York City Ballet.
Symphony in C: in 1948 this work was among those given at the opening performance by the New York City Ballet. Each movement of Bizet's symphony is danced by a different group of soloists and corps de ballet, the whole company uniting for the finale.
Agon: created in 1957, this is one of many great works resulting from the collaboration between Balanchine and Stravinsky that began under Diaghilev with Apollon Musagète and continued until the composer's death.

: Children of No Man's Land

In an old hotel on the South Coast, Professor Zita Albes runs a school for children with learning difficulties. Their problems are so severe that they could not cope with life in ordinary schools and yet they are not mentally subnormal-they are the 'children of no man's land.' But this school provides a place to belong and a community that cares. Using her own unique methods PROFESSOR ALBES develops their individual-talents and fits them for life in the world outside.

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.
