: Rugby Special

International Championship 1975 France v Scotland; Wales v England Scotland and Wales are the only undefeated sides in this year's championship and both will have to play at their best today to maintain the situation. In Paris the Scots face the French who, a fortnight ago at Twickenham, demonstrated the running and handling skills at which they can be supreme; while the Welsh take on an England side with much latent talent that must surely emerge before the season's end.

: 2nd House

Introduced by Melvyn Bragg Toback's Gambler
A film about the New York College lecturer and occasional sports-writer who has written the story and the script of Karel Reisz 's new film The Gambler, starring James Caan. MELVYN BRAGG talked to JAMES TOBACK in New York.
The Night Mare
In 1782 a new painting by the Swiss artist Henry Fuseli shocked the Royal Academy. The painting is about a dream. A woman sprawled on a bed with a goblin squatting on her chest and a horse peering through the window. It was called the Night Mare and has disturbed spectators ever since. This month an exhibition of Fuseli's work opens at the Tate Gallery and EDWIN MULLINS asked psychiatrist and writer ANTHONY STORR for some clues to the personality behind these extraordinary images.
9.40 Knots
Based on the book by R. D. LAING
He is a well-known and controversial figure in psychiatry and his previous books have been on that subject. Since Knots is a very simple text, many people were puzzled as to what they should make of this one.
Laing says, ' I have always tried to write literature, regardless of what people thought I was doing ... Several people have said that they found it a relief to see something they recognised in their lives. It turns some of the agony into humour.'
Knots was adapted for the stage by EDWARD PETHERBRIDGE for the ACTORS' COMPANY and the film is directed by DAVID i. MUNRO. Cast: CAROLINE BLAKISTON

I don' remember falling or anything, just coming to and trying to scrape the mud out of my eyes. And then something hit me on the back, high up, near the shoulder.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
