Round 1, Game 3: Larsen v Donner
' Well, Donner believes very much in the strength of the two bishops. He says he can never lose when he's a pawn down with two bishops ... but that's sheer nonsense,' says BENT LARSEN (Denmark), himself four times world title candidate, whose aggressive and imaginative style of play thrills chess fans all over the world. He clashes with JAN HEIN

: Hospital

The sixth in a series of nine documentary films about the Bolton Area Health Authority. Industrial Action
When management decided not to replace a retired gardener, they collided with NUPE stalwart Emily Young , union branch secretary, who is very suspicious of her employer's moves to cut down on staff. With a dedicated disregard for anything but the interests of her members, she brings about a lightning sit-in of a gardener, a porter, and their youthful helper. The sitters-in are conscience-smitten. Who will bring the geriatrics their meals? But duty to geriatrics withers before Emily's indignation. The men agree to sit it out and leave all the talking to Emily, and Emily is only too happy to do that.

This year's London Film Festival -the 21st - has been one of the biggest ever with a wider spread of films - in scale, nationality, genre and politics - than ever before. But one of the constant themes in pictures big and small has been the political struggle of Left and Right: fascism still seems everybody's favourite subject.

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.

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.
