The John Player League Somerset v Yorkshire
Last season Viv Richards scored 26 sixes in the John Player League for Somerset, and set up a new league record which will take a lot of beating.
The prize for the fastest 50 went to Jim Love of Yorkshire who took just 41 balls to make it.
With batting of this standard this should be a very high-scoring match indeed.
Peter Walker introduces the programme which includes news of today's other fixtures:
Essex v Hampshire
Gloucestershire v Worcestershire Lancashire v Glamorgan
Middlesex t' Nottinghamshire Warwickshire v Surrey

Countdown for Leviathan
Can the whales survive the numbers game?
Last year, over 20,000 whales were slaughtered to help provide leather softeners, lubricating oils, cosmetics and crayons. Britain has banned the import of some whale products. But last year we imported 5,000 metric tonnes of sperm whale oil worth two million pounds.
Tomorrow, the International Whaling Commission meet in London. They will decide whether to ban whaling for ten years to allow stocks to recover or to set new catch levels for next season.
This programme shows how man's new concern for the whale conflicts with the commercial values of the whaling industry whose interests are protected by the iwc. Narrated by DEREK JONES
Produced for the National Geographic Society by Nicolas Noxon, and for Greenpeace by MICHAEL CHECHIK

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.
