Worcestershire won nine of their John Player League matches last year to finish third in the table. They were also second in the Schweppes County Championship. New Zealander Glenn Turner , Younis Ahmed , Phil Neale and Alan Ormrod all scored over 1,000 runs last season, and the addition of Hartley Alleyne to back fellow Barbadian Vanburn Holder has strengthened the Worcestershire attack.
PETER WALKER introduces the programme, which includes news of today's other fixtures.

: The Last Place on Earth

A series of four programmes 3: Making the World Go Round
Presented by Michel Peissel
In the Tibetan Kingdom of Zanskar there is no word for technology. To them, machines were invented to grind corn, or to make incense -not to make money. Yet the technology is there - to irrigate their high-altitude desert valley, to build their houses, to get gold from the rivers, to cure their horses, trap the wolves, and to extract the dyes, medicines and insecticides from the many plants that grow in the short summer.

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.
