: Golf: Ryder Cup

Action from the Belfry,
Warwickshire, as Europe's attempt to win back the Ryder Cup from the USA begins with the foursomes. Europe will draw early inspiration from the fact that its players have triumphed over the Americans on both previous occasions when the competition has been held at the Belfry. In 1985 Tony Jacklin led his men to a famous victory to take the trophy away from the Americans for the first time since 1957, and in the contest was halved, with Europe, as holders, retaining the cup by virtue of its win at Muirfield Village in 1987. Introduced by Steve Ryder , with commentary and analysis by Peter Alliss ,
Bruce Critchley , Alex Hay , Dave Marr , Clive Clark ,
Mike Hughesdon , Howard Clark and Mickey Walker. Prod ucerAlastair Scott
Executive producer John Shrewsbury

South Africa: an Indian Experience
The first Indians arrived in South Africa in 1860, shipped in as cheap labour. They were followed by traders known as the "passenger Indians". It was to represent one of these that Mahatma Gandhi travelled to South Africa from London - so sparking his campaigning spirit. This first of two films traces the first 100 years of the Indian experience in South Africa.

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.
