Professional Championship from Redcar Bowl
The atmosphere in the hall will be beginning to boil as the semi-final stages of this eight-day tournament begin in which 32 top British darts players started out last
Saturday in search of a major title and a E10,000 first prize. Tonight the last four players 'toe-the-oche' and bidding for his third title could be the No 1 seed, ERIC BRISTOW and, if form is any guide, his opponent should be 'up-and-coming' Star BOB ANDERSON (No 4 seed).
The second semi-final should bring together two experienced campaigners,
CLIFF LAZARENKO (No 6 seed) and DAVE WHITCOMBE (No 3 seed), both itching to win this most prestigious championship for the first time.
The heat is now being turned on. It's up to the best of 11 sets, still three legs per set.

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.
