: Sunday Grandstand

Which today focuses on the last day of the Open Golf Championships at Turnberry. For full details see page 42. 1.55 pm Sunday Grandstand Introduced by Steve Rider Golf: The Open Thus it was written, that in July 1977 at a place called Turnberry in the Scottish County of Ayr, an American called Watson did shoot an opening 68 - so did Jack. Verily on the next day, he did a 70 - so did Jack, and then a 65 - so did Jack. So it came to pass on the fourth day, the Sabbath, that a miracle fell upon the links. Tom did another 65 - and, having denied him thrice, so did Jack wish. He made 66.
Young Tom , showing a liking for the fatherland, won three more there, his pal won one (and this year's US Masters). So over to you 'Mr Watson'. He couldn't, could he? All the way from 55 to 72, there's extra time, but no penalties. Commentators

: Dancemakers

The Choreographer and the Dance
In the last programme of the series, Siobhan Davies and her Bridge the Distance with members of London Contemporary Dance Theatre
'Dance - all the arts - have the most extraordinary chance to use an audience's imagination. To try to pre-define that too much is to limit it'
Resident choreographer of London Contemporary Dance Theatre, Siobhan Davies has produced for them a whole series of works, serene yet highly charged with emotional content, of which one of the most beautiful in recent years is Bridge the Distance, performed tonight. Siobhan Davies talks about the origins of the work, its music - the sublime last string quartet by Benjamin Britten - and its allusions to Venice and the novella by Thomas Mann , on which Britten based his opera Death in Venice.
And the distance to be bridged, she suggests, seems to be between an older man at the centre, aware and capable of the highest creativity, and the couples around him, social beings, down to earth, dancing not just as people but also as players and instruments of the string quartet itself.

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.
