: Motor Racing

from Zolder
The pace and noise levels are upped slightly. Red and white here mean the McLarens of NIKI LAUDA and ALAIN PROST , on a hat-trick for the Ron Dennis TAG team after their quick one-two in South Africa. Supposing it matters, it begs the question of who, if either, is team leader. No doubt about the Frenchman's position in the championship so far - he is clear by six. Our team is MURRAY WALKER and JAMES HUNT , and they agree on practically everything!

The Embassy
World Professional Snooker Championship from the Crucible Theatre, Sheffield
It must be of great comfort to the organisers that rain cannot stop play here. If it does at the cricket, then this should be our second visit to the Crucible. HIGGINS, WHITE, KNOWLES and THORBURN were the top four in the original batting order, but it's a funny game, snooker.

: All That Matters to Me

An Artist in Ireland
'People sometimes wonder whether I'm an English painter or an Irish painter. I was born in England and I lived in England for many years. I've lived in Ireland for 30 years, which is nearly half my lifetime. The fact is that I paint and that's all that matters to me.'
Derek Hill lives in County Donegal, one of the loveliest counties in Ireland. His home is an old rectory overlooking Gartan Lough. Summers are spent in a hut on Tory, a remote and windswept island 12 miles offshore in the Atlantic. Derek Hill is closely associated with the fortunes of Tory and with the work of its primitive painters.

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.
