: Arena

The Ring - a South London Tale For centuries, bare-knuckle boxing has been going on behind closed doors. Nigel Finch 's unusual film investigates this illegal activity by following one hopeful as he prepares for a fight against the "Cyclone", the Northern
Ireland bare-knuckle boxing champion (unlicensed).
Softly spoken Paul Lynch does not conform to the tough image of a street fighter. But he says
"it's show business.... it's in my blood." Lynch has already found some fame as the world's two-armed, one-armed and one-fingered press-up champion. Now, in a corrugated-iron barn a short sprint from the Irish border, he has the chance for recognition in his own community.
Ultimately, the film probably gives as much of an insight into the making of an arts documentary as it does into bare-knuckle boxing. Series editors Nigel Finch and Anthony Wall

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.
