: Sunday Grandstand

Introduced by Desmond Lynam
The first in a new series of Sunday programmes which will reflect the changing face of British and international sport with the emphasis moving to a Sunday conclusion of many major events.

International Golf
The Martini International from the West Course, Wentworth
Coverage of the final round, with £11,000 plus vital Ryder Cup points going to the winner of this important International in its 21st year.
Commentators Harry Carpenter, Peter Alliss, Clive Clark, Bruce Critchley and Alex Hay


International Motor Racing
The Belgian Grand Prix
The fifth World Championship race in the current series. Carlos Reutemann and Alan Jones, the current World Champion, made a flying start to the season by winning the first two races and in this race last year filled the minor placings behind Didier Pironi. Nelson Piquet in his Brabham should issue a strong challenge on this circuit and an exciting race is in prospect.
Commentators Murray Walker and James Hunt


The John Player League
One-day cricket offers a format which ensures entertaining and fast-moving play and with over £30,000 in prize-money at stake there will be a very competitive edge to the matches as well. This is the 12th year of this popular league, and current champions Warwickshire will be hard-pressed to retain their title. Live coverage of the day's most attractive fixture.
Commentators Jim Laker and Christopher Martin-Jenkins

: Dayan

The last of a three-part profile Statesman
In the aftermath of the 1973 Yom Kippur War Moshe Dayan , Israels
Minister of Defence, was cleared of negligence in his preparations for war-but his reputation for infallibility was in pieces. In the years which followed he began to examine his relationships with the Arabs and to reassess Jewish attitudes to them since the first settlers arrived in Palestine 100 years before. With those thoughts came a realisation that, although he has spent his whole life fighting the Arabs, the land he has been defending is no more Jewish than Arab and that it ought to be possible to find a solution by which both Arab and Jew can live together in peace in the ancient land of the Bible.

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.
