The French Open Championships Men's Final
BJORN BORG makes his return to tennis, attempting to win his sixth French title. By his standards, he has had an appalling year, having won only two tournaments since last year's Wimbledon. Because of a shoulder injury and a virus, he hasn't competed since Easter, when he lost in the first round at Monte Carlo. Also extremely keen to win is JIMMY CONNORS , who has never won a major clay-court title. Commentators

: Film of the Week: A Woman Under the Influence

Gena Rowlands , Peter Falk
This ambitious and harrowing drama focuses on a Los Angeles housewife whose sense of identity disintegrates as the film progresses. Mabel has subjugated herself to her husband's domineering love and the needs of her children, but is cracking up under the strain this imposes. Her husband Nick, loving but ignorant, copes with her growing eccentricities by filling her life with friends, relatives and contrived jollity, thus unwittingly precipitating the crisis. Mabel is stunningly acted by Gena Row lands and Peter Falk excels as the gruff and aggressive Nick in this characteristically powerful study of a mind in torment by director John Cassavetes.

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.
