Introduced from Sandwich by Steve Rider.
Golf: the Open
The final round of the 122nd
Open from Royal St George's, Sandwich. Last year, an emotional Nick Faldo fought off a brave late challenge by American John Cook to win a memorable third Open title in six years. Faldo's first Open success came at Muirfield in 1987 when he took the title with a faultless final round of 18 pars. He won the title for a second time in 1990 at
St Andrews. In addition to
Faldo, Greg Norman ,
Seve Ballesteros , Mark Calcavecchia and Ian Baker-Finch have all been crowned Open champions since the last championship at Sandwich. Ryder Cup star
Jose-Maria Olazabal achieved his best Open finish at Muirfield last year in third place and many believe it is time the talented Spaniard won his first major. Other leading players hoping to be in the running include US Masters champion Bernhard Langer , Britain's Ian Woosnam , and America's Paul Azinger. Commentary by Peter Alliss , Bruce Critchley , Alex Hay , Dave Marr , Clive Clark , Mike Hughesdon ,
Dougie Donnelly and Mark McCormack. TV presentation John Shrewsbury

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.

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