: Cricket

The John Player League featuring
Hampshire v Lancashire
Portsmouth is the setting for today's meeting of two former holders of the John Player Trophy. Hampshire won in 1975 and Lancashire, realising the potential of one-day cricket at a very early stage, took top place in 1969 and 1970. Barry Richards of Hampshire, who always figures in the batting averages, still holds the highest individual score of 155 runs in a Sunday match.
PETER WALKER introduces the programme which includes news of today's other fixtures.

: The World About Us

The Truth About Red Cloud, General Custer, Butch Cassidy ... and John Wayne
' Yessir ... if you've seen it on those Western movies, it first happened on the Powder.'
The American West - nowhere else in the world has been so saturated in fiction. But to producer Tim Slessor who once lived there, the reality is much more dramatic than the myth.
This film tells the story of just one small area: the Powder River basin of Wyoming. Here, in its original edition, happened almost everything that has gone to make the West the legend that it has become. This was the final strong-hold of Sioux; later, came English and Scots m'luds who aimed to make their fortunes as cattle-barons. Later still, came the Wild
Bunch - led by Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. But, as this film discloses, they were not killed in an Andean shoot-out ... Yessir ... It first happened on the Powder.

: Dance Month

Thank You Madam An 80th birthday tribute to
Dame Ninette de Valois , founder of The Royal Ballet.
' I don't think it was particularly clever-I just crossed the Waterloo Road and talked to her.' That meeting at the Old Vic with Lilian Baylis in 1926 led to the foundation of The Royal Ballet.
Dame Ninette, known to generations of dancers as Madam, tells the story of The Royal Ballet. Then, as a tribute to her work, there is another chance to see the recording of Checkmate featuring Robert Helpmann and Beryl Grey

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.
