The John Player Cup Final Gloucester v Leicester
Gloucester were the first-ever winners of the Cup in 1972 but have failed to reach the final ever since. Their powerful pack, supported by the kicking of Peter Butler , is the basis of their success this season. Leicester are playing in their, first final and will rely on the experience of Peter Wheeler in the forwards and the dash of internationals Dusty Hare and Paul Dodge. Commentator at Twickenham

The Image of Our Choice
Thirty Years of Independence
It is barely 30 years since the last British troops left a newly Independent India and ended 300 years of British presence there.
James Cameron , who has spent much time in India both before and since Independence, looks at the films that the BBC has made there since 1948. They reflect the problems and changes that India has faced in this time but they also show our own particular picture of India as a country of Maharajas, mystics, hippies, temples, poverty, over-population, Mrs Gandhi and steam trains. That is the image of our choice.
The Indian film-makers, in contrast, were concerned with industry and development. Together these films give a picture of India in the 30 years of Independence.

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.
