The John Player League featuring Somerset v Sussex
Few counties have a better crop of young players than Somerset. Sussex's concentration on a youth policy has still to pay dividends.

PETER WALKER introduces the programme which includes news of today's other fixtures:
Essex v Warwickshire
Glamorgan v Gloucestershire Hampshire v Derbyshire Lancashire v Surrey Middlesex v Kent

Mexican Madness: the story of the Rio Balsas Power Boat Marathon
The State of Guerrero is one of the most arid and beautiful in Mexico. Once a year the canyons and the river are shattered by the roar of power boats. Visiting international crews send their 600 hp jet boats snarling down the rapids at 70 mph. Some leap over the rocks; some slam into them and sink - £4,000-worth of boat lost in a few seconds. The 370-mile race lasts five days and passes through rapids and canyons, lakes and the open sea. Each night the Army build a barbed wire camp on the beach - bandits without, scorpions within - but the Mexican stars are overhead and the excitement of Mexico all around. For the Rio
Balsas is much more than just a river race - it is a journey through Mexico.

starring
Alan Alda as Hawkeye and Wayne Rogers as Trapper John in Germ Warfare
Hawkeye only wants a pint of Frank's blood. Not much to ask and it's all in a good cause. But it is a fairly safe bet that stingy Frank will refuse even such a paltry donation so Hawkeye helps himself-and gets the shock of his 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.
