Midland Bank World Indoor Pairs Championship
Introduced by DAVID ICKE
The last two matches of the first round are completed today. Last year's Irish pairs champions ROBIN HORNER and DAVID GARDINER have a difficult contest against the bright young Welsh pair,
JOHN PRICE and STEPHEN REES in this afternoon's match.
Both Irishmen are new to the TV scene and like many of their countrymen, play their bowls at the Belfast City
Indoor Club. Stephen Rees , the 26-year-old Welshman, caused an upset this season winning the UK title against David Bryant , while his partner John Price has won all the Welsh Indoor championships. All this points to a difficult match for the Irish pair.

A Day at the Zoo

: Take Nobody's Word for It

with Carol Mather and Professor Ian Fells In the week that the European Year of the Environment is launched, a report on the Acid Drops

Effects Designer's mum), much of the programme is devoted to an explanation.... Assistant producers

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.
