The John Player League
Worcestershire v Middlesex
The track record of these two counties speaks for itself. Worcestershire were champions in 1971 and runners-up last season. Middlesex were beaten finalists in two one-day competitions last year. As one-day specialists there cannot be two better to meet.

: The World About Us

The Great Turtle Mystery Narrator Hugh Falkus
Suddenly and silently, from out of the boiling surf come thousands upon thousands of turtles. Soon a normally deserted beach in Costa Rica disappears under the weight of an Arribada - the Spanish word for this frenzy of mass nesting which is one of the great mysteries of the sea.
This rarely seen spectacle has been filmed by David Hughes , who spent many months investigating the turtles' strange behaviour and the even more dramatic events that follow the laying of ten million eggs on one tiny beach. For, as the eggs hatch, the predators move in - sharks, vultures, iguanas and even crabs lie in wait for the start of one of the most remarkable struggles for survival in the animal world.

: Death of a Virtuoso: Weber

One hundred and fifty years ago yesterday, Carl Maria von Weber died in London after a long, agonising illness.
To mark the anniversary, John Warrack celebrates the achievements of the most famous German opera composer of his time... Weber was also a virtuoso performer, who wrote music of originality and brilliance for the orchestra, for solo instrumentalists, and for singers, with Josephine Barstow (soprano) Gervase de Peyer (clarinet) Craig Sheppard (piano) and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Sir Charles Groves

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.

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.
