NIGEL STARMER-SMITH introduces highlights from the opening matches of the International Championship.
Wales are still recovering from their defeat by Romania in November, but Scotland have shown, in their draw with New Zealand, the form that took them to the historic 34-18 victory on their last visit to Cardiff.
Ireland and France shared the Championship last season, but Ireland, led by Lions' Captain Ciaran Fitzgerald and helped by the boot of Ollie Campbell, were the only side to defeat the French. Commentators BILL MCLAREN and NIGEL STARMER-SMITH

: An Englishman Abroad

by ALAN BENNETT starring Alan Bates with Coral Browne and Charles Gray
When a mysterious Englishman appears in her dressing-room, Coral Browne assumes he is attached to the Embassy, but if so, why are his trousers out at the knees? And what does he want with her face-powder? An invitation to lunch will perhaps explain, though the lunch consists of one tomato.
... the most perfectly achieved film this year.
... a masterpiece. (SUNDAY times) Sad, funny, ironic, compassionate, and exactly the right length. (DAILY TELEGRAPH)

The Benson and Hedges Masters from the Wembley
Conference Centre
Ray Reardon v John Virgo
Both RAY REARDON and JOHN VIRGO have had disappointing seasons so far, neither of them being in the big money. Reardon - six times World Champion - will be all the more determined to begin the new year with some successes, while John Virgo , widely regarded as one of the most talented players on the circuit, must surely return to his form of a few years ago when he won the UK Championship.
DAVID ICKE introduces highlights of this best-of-9-frame match.

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.
