: Lions and Lambs

Ever since 1888, when the first British Isles Rugby Union team toured Australasia, the Lions have roared around the world.
In 1890, one of the most exclusive sporting clubs in the world was formed -The Barbarians - team without a ground or a subscription; membership by invitation only.

On Saturday at Twickenham, the British Lions play the 'Baa-Baas' in a unique Jubilee Test Match in front of HRH The Prince of Wales. In tonight's programme, former Lion and Barbarian Cliff Morgan reflects on great moments from rugby history.

1948: and the first Barbarian match against a touring side.
1955: and victory to the Lions in South Africa by the odd point in 45.
1959: and defeat by the boot of Don Clarke.
1973: and perhaps the greatest Rugby Union match ever played.

These are just some of the memorable moments in a pot-pourri of rugby nostalgia.

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.
