The County Championship Final Middlesex v Gloucestershire
Gloucestershire have had a remarkable run in the Championships in recent years. Today's match will be the seventh successive final they have contested. Middlesex last won through to this stage in 1968 when they defeated Lancashire. Middlesex have a highly competent side which includes the new Scotland pairing of Alan Lawson and Ron Wilson at half-back and could stop Gloucestershire's powerful forwards from winning the title for the third year running.

: The World About Us

Otter
Narrator BILL TRAVERS
European otters are graceful, playful and beautifully adapted to an amphibious life. They're also solitary, very elusive and mostly nocturnal, which is why so few of us see them.
Philip Wayre is the exception as he lives his life surrounded by otters of all sorts. And now he has even persuaded our British otters to breed in captivity. As a result of his work -and that of a small group of dedicated naturalists - we can at last begin to uncover - and now even film - some of the secrets of the otter's life.

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.
