The last of four programmes Henry Cotton
Few men have done more to transform attitudes in sport than HENRY COTTON . When he became a professional golfer Cotton, like all pros', was excluded from the clubhouse. Now he is respected and welcomed throughout the world and in every clubhouse, as a golHng ambassador. His success in competitions is legendary-three Open Championships testify to that. Latterly, he has designed golf courses, including one at Penina in Portugal's AIgarve, where he now lives.
Tonight, Peter AtUss talks to golf s elder statesman.

: Diamonds in the Sky: 7: Flying into the Future

The last programme in a series which examines the impact of air travel on ourselves and the world we live in. Presented by Julian Pettifer

Whatever technical challenges aviation engineers may be resolving, the whole future of air travel - as a social force - still holds many unanswered questions.
Who will fly where and in what? Will millions more who have not yet flown take to the air? Is growth in air traffic inevitable? Will fuel be the limiting factor? Will there be giant new airports, or will the protesters win the day? In this final programme, Julian Pettifer journeys to a variety of countries to see where civil aviation has brought us in the last 60 years and to ask where it may take us all in the future.

Book (same title), £7.95, from bookshops. Theme music (RESL 72) from record shops.

: The White, the Black, and the Purple

' The churches in America are places of business. They've become sellers and purveyors of flesh. They're whorehouses. The national cathedral is an abomination.' Those are the views of Mitch Snyder, a leading Christian activist in Washington DC.
MITCH SNYDER is white.
' Power corrupts, but power is a reality. It's what we have and it doesn't scare me a bit.'
Says John Walker , the new bishop of the traditionally white Anglo-Saxon and Protestant Episcopalians in Washington. JOHN WALKER is black. leuan Davies tells of some of the contradictions which surround the building of a vast new cathedral in that city of social conflicts which is the capital of the United States.

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.
