: International Snooker

The Rothmans Grand Prix Tony Meo v John Parrott Robert Chaperon v Stephen Hendry
Stephen Hendry burst on to the professional snooker scene last season, winning the Scottish title, and only just losing to Willie Thorne in the World Championship.
Still only 17, he has defeated Eugene Hughes to reach the Hexagon stage and, with other seeds having failed to qualify, he has a great chance of reaching the semi-finals. Canadian Robert Chaperon also has a golden opportunity, having defeated Ray Reardon to qualify. DAVID VINE introduces coverage from both the afternoon's best-of-nine-frame first-round matches.

: No Limits

Lake District Since wandering around like clouds, lonely or not, went out of fashion - and especially as autumn's a bad time for daffs - let
No Limits transport you beneath the trees, beside the Lake District.
After all, when there's fabulous powerplay music and brilliant videos to be played, what are words worth?
Perhaps it's poetic justice. Directors

: Under Sail

A Lady of Leisure
The yacht Voluta could have ended her days a rotting hulk in a West Country harbour.
She didn't, thanks to a group of hard-working business people who wanted to make money in a pleasurable way. Now they've restored this vessel, which was built as a yawl in the last year of Queen Victoria's reign, and she's in the charter business, giving her 'paying guests' a taste of life afloat in a vintage vessel.

Drisheen, carrigeen, crubeens, coddle, oysters and stout....
If that sounds a bit Irish, the reason is that intrepid gastronaut Keith Floyd visited his

Dennis Taylor v John Virgo Paddy Browne v Mark Bennett
Two very contrasting matches are played tonight as the first round is concluded. Dennis Taylor and John Virgo , two of snooker's best-known entertainers, with 25 years of experience between them, play nine frames. Paddy Browne and Mark Bennett have three years' experience between them. Browne sensationally defeated Joe Johnson to gain the best victory of his career, while Bennett, in his first season, won three matches to reach the final stages.

: Red Ellen

Ellen Wilkinson marching through the rain at the head of the Jarrow March 50 years ago is one of the most enduring images of the 1930s. Yet, at a time when so much attention is devoted to the role of women in the Labour movement, Ellen's work is largely forgotten.
Bel Mooney , drawing on BETTY VERNON 'S recent biography, sets out to remedy this neglect and explores the politics, journalism and loves of 'Red Ellen'. Camera PAUL OTTER

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.
