: Golf

From Baltusrol, New Jersey.
The final round of the US Open Golf Championship, the season's second major tournament, fought out over one of America's finest tree-lined parkland courses. The club, one of America's oldest, was founded in 1895 and takes its name from the mountain it lies beneath, itself named after a local farmer,
Dutch immigrant Baltus Roll. Last year's title was won by Tom Kite at Pebble Beach: although this was his first major championship win in 20 years, he had, in the meantime, become the game's biggest earner.
This year, the strong European contingent led by Bernhard Langer and Nick Faldo are seeking the first European victory for 23years. Introduced by Steve Rider , with commentary by Peter Alliss , Bruce Critchley and Dave Marr.

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.
