Tony Jacklin and Gary Player are the host professionals over the next ten weeks for the Whyte and Mackay Scotch Trophy.
Tony Jacklin 's outstanding achievements - winning the British and American Opens in the same year and as captain of the triumphant Ryder Cup team in 1985 - have confirmed him as a golfing hero. His partner is Jasper Carrott , who has an approach to golf that is all his own. Gary Player, having won all golfs major honours, is now, at 51, reaping even richer rewards on the senior circuit. He is joined by ex-World Snooker Champion Cliff Thorburn , whose golf swing is as smooth as his cueing action.

Faces of Cromwell
Oliver Cromwell was a tyrant, a repressed religious bigot who murdered a king, ruthlessly ended the world's first socialist movement and had grand designs to make himself King Oliver I. Oliver Cromwell was a superb man - patriotic, a magnificent warrior and civilised with a tremendous sense of humour, a bursting conscience in matters of state and religion and personally unambitious. Which assessment even approaches the truth? Views of Oliver Cromwell vary as much today as when Parliament asked him to become King in 1657. How do modern historians view the parliamentarian who some have called the greatest Englishman? With Christopher Hill Hugh Trevor-Roper

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.

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