: Top Crown

BBC2 Invitation Pairs Crown Green Bowling Tournament from the Mitchells and Butler Sports and Social Club, Birmingham.
Second Quarter-Final
The defending champions ROY ARMSON and NOEL BURROWS enter the fray tonight - strongly fancied to become the first pairing to retain the BBC2 Top Crown Trophy. But they face possibly the best pairing from the Midlands in PETER VARNEY and BOB GILFILLAN. Though new faces to this particular tournament, they have a host of individual Midlands' titles to their credit, and they could provide something of an upset if they play to form. RICHARD DUCKENFIELD introduces the action.

: The Family

In 1974, producer Paul Watson introduced to television the Wilkins family of Reading. They were filmed day and night. Their prejudices, thoughts, hopes, fears and disappointments became public knowledge. It was the first time that the private life of an English family had been exposed with such candour and intimacy. This is a chance to see again a series that helped to change documentary film, and to evaluate from today's perspective the ups and downs of an urban family, who knew nothing of Thatcherism, yuppies, the Princess of Wales and Neighbours.

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.
