The John Player League
Middlesex v Leicestershire
Both teams lie close together in the table. Winning this match is vital to both Leicestershire and Middlesex to keep in touch with the top half of the League. A defeat at this stage in the season could end all hope of being involved in the prize money in September.

: The World About Us

Monsters! Mysteries or Myths? Narrated by DEREK JONES
Have you met -' Sasquatch,' ' Nessie ' or ' Yeti '? These ' things ' have one thing in common - each is a legendary monster but with apparently unique identity.
From the American North-west to the Scottish Highlands and on to the Himalayas, both lay enthusiasts and cool experts claim to have seen or heard uncatalogued animal monsters. Scientists oscillate between energetic scepticism and suspended disbelief; but for people who claim to have actually seen these monsters they're definitely not mythical-though they're certainly mysterious. Do you believe in monsters?

: Yesterday's Witness

Coming Out in 39 During the summer months in the years before the last war, the daughters of the very best families were driven to Buckingham Palace to be presented at Court. This presentation was the climax of a very special summer for these girls. They were debutantes, making their debut into fashionable society. It was all called ' Coming Out.' And after 1939 mothers never again presented their daughters at Court in the evening. Catherine Ormsby-Gore , Dinah Brand and Christian Grant were all driven to Buckingham Palace to be presented that summer before the war. And they remember the fun and formality of a first London Season.

(Der Letze Akt) starring Albin Skoda

April, 1945 - in the bunker in the garden of the Berlin Chancellery, the Russian shelling can be heard ominously near. Those surrounding Hitler try desperately to keep their leader in ignorance of the situation while the Fuehrer himself deploys largely non-existent armies and listens to the optimistic' prophecies of his astrologer. The ' Thousand Year Reich ' has approximately ten days to run ... Director

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.
