Presented by Jeremy James
Eight of the world's leading Grand Masters lock their minds in battle to decide who will be the Master Game Champion and take the first prize of £2,500. Game 6:
Walter Browne (USA) v John Nunn (GB)
' My Queen is badly placed ... my King's in difficulties, I think my best hope is to get some counter-play as soon as possible,' says Nunn, as he calculates the risks against the American genius who will gamble on anything if the stakes are right and the odds reasonable.

Six Days in September
' Paintings are not to be reasoned with, they are not to be understood, they are to be recognised.'
This week a major exhibition on the origins of abstract art opened at the Tate Gallery. As the pros and cons of figurative versus abstract art are once again fiercely debated, Arena presents a revealing film about one man at the centre of this debate.
John Hoyland , reckoned by many to be this country's finest abstract painter, has been both loved and hated to excess. Tonight's film stays close to the artist through six long days as he struggles to complete a new painting. He explains why, in bleaker moments, it can feel ' like flicking away in a corner with a feather duster '.

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.
