Introduced by Desmond Lynam
Golf from Sunningdale: Panasonic European Open
If Sandy Lyle has a putt to win on the 72nd, it'll be worth £83,320, like the difference between going home to a smart semi in Surbiton or sleeping rough on the Old Course.
£50,000 of that is a bonus for doing the Open double. Nae bother to the Big Yin.

: Scoraig

Scoraig is a peninsula of scattered crofts in the western Highlands of Scotland. It is a beautiful but inhospitable place reached by footpath through the hills or by sea across a loch. The soil is poor, the winters long, the landscape dark on many days under clouds that roll in from the Atlantic. The last of the highlanders abandoned it 20 years ago and a new generation of crofters began to arrive, people mainly from the cities looking for a simple life. The film tells the story of what happened to them and what they have made of it. Narrator

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
