: International Darts

Fads Homecare British
International Championship England v Wales
The final match of this prestigious triangular tournament between
England, Scotland and Wales brings together the two favourites to take the title.
England entertain Wales and will have to beat them to be sure of winning the trophy. If Wales win, it will be a three-country tie for the championship, as Scotland beat Wales in the first match, and England defeated
Scotland in the second. The championship will then be decided on the country which has won the most sets, then the most legs.
Captains JOHN LOWE for
England and ALAN EVANS for Wales will obviously try to spur their teams to victory, but England should be favourite on their home ground at Preston.

They are PAUL KLEE's Garden with birds
(described by Richard Cork ) PICASSO'S Guernica

: Ski Sunday

featuring The Men's Downhill from Whistler Mountain
The Alpine snow men are going downhill for the final time this season, here on the pine-covered slopes of British Columbia. It's a two-hour drive from
Vancouver at a sedate 40 mph up Highway 99, but just two minutes at a frantic 80 mph down the 'Orange Pony
Gondola Trail' will settle the most important championship issues of the BASF Ski World Cup.
For Great Britain, the season ends on the most optimistic note - can MARTIN BELL further improve on the best placings he has ever had to become one of the elite group of top-seeded downhillers? David Vine reports on the climax to the Ski Sunday series.

: Architecture at the Crossroads

Last of ten films about contemporary architecture Architecture: Quo Vadis?
This has been a series about change - in the attitudes of contemporary architects, in public awareness, in the ways they are shaping our future environment. There has been some optimism, but the last ten years of anxiety and argument have thrown up many questions and too few answers. The seminal buildings of our century are still those of the 20s and 30s, of the so-called Modern
Movement. But the last decade has seen new adventures in architecture that may, once their effects have been assimilated, join the list of seminal buildings of the century. A look at
MICHAEL graves's Humana building in Kentucky, ARATA ISOZAKI'S Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, ROGERS'S Lloyd's Insurance building in London, and FOSTER'S Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank. In Paris, eight vast projects are in the making, catering for the demands of the next century.
Architects and writers
1. M. Pei , Richard Meier Richard Rogers Norman Foster Philip Johnson
Ada Louise Huxtable and Kenneth Frampton offer their own definitions of the changing role of the architect, still complex and uncertain. For the doubts we all have about architecture reflect the doubts we have about our society.

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.
