The John Player Special Cup (Fourth round)
Orrell v Harlequins Nigel Starmer-Smith introduces highlights of yesterday's north-south clash.

News of the rest of the weekend's rugby, and a look forward to next week's internationals.

The Deciding Factor
Why did the chicken cross the road? Whatever the answer, it involved a decision, perhaps crucial to its survival. Making the right decisions is as vital to animals as it is to us. How is it done?
Presented with a choice of actions most of us, surprisingly, make the right one where our lives are concerned; and that goes for animals too. Life's decision-making mechanisms have been honed by millions of years of evolution in octopus and crab, cuckoo and reed-warbler, homeless honey-bees, amorous dung-flies, motorway rooks or blackberrying ramblers. Now you must decide to watch ... Narrator Barry Paine

: Screen Two: Northanger Abbey

Screenplay by MAGGIE WADEY from the novel by JANE AUSTEN starring
Peter Firth
Googie Withers
Robert Hardy and Katharine Schlesinger
Like teenage girls of all times Catherine Morland adores reading stories of love and adventure: maidens abducted to sinister castles, bodies concealed behind damask curtains, heroes riding to the rescue on white horses. All very different from the materialistic pleasure-seeking world of 18th-century Bath. But when aristocratic Henry Tilney invites her to Northanger Abbey it seems her fantasies may come true.

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.
