South Africa v The British Isles from Bloemfontein
Highlights of the Second Test
Having been beaten in a thrilling test at Cape Town two weeks ago, the British team must win the Second Test at Bloemfontein to keep alive their chances of winning the four-match series. An unprecedented number of injuries have made it difficult for the Lions to settle on their best team, but Bill Beaumont is confident that victory for his team is possible. This game also presents the Springboks with an opportunity to dispel memories of their worst-ever international defeat at the hands of the Lions in the Second Test of 1974. Commentator

: All Change for.... Brighton

' All Queen Anne front and Mary-Ann back; elegance on one side, vulgarity on the other.'
That's how Jack Tinker , theatre critic of the Daily Mail, describes the Regency flavour of Brighton, where he's lived for 20 years.
Since Prinny's day it's been an unlikely confection of theatrical grandeur and what-the-butler-saw. But post-war planning has allowed whole streets of Old Brighton to be torn down and replaced by tower blocks and car parks. Some people have moved away in despair. JACK TINKER is among those who have chosen to stay and fight.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
