: Young Musician of the Year

Tonight's five finalists have all won their categories on solo performances. Having fought off 600 entrants, they now have to play a concerto, accompanied by the National
Youth Orchestra of Great Britain.
Opera North's Paul Daniel conducts from the Barbican Centre, London, and Sarah Greene presents.
If this year's winner is as lucky as his or her predecessor, pianist Frederick Kempf , life will be quite different after the competition. The publicity
16-year-old Freddy received earned him concert after concert, and he is now so busy touringthe country that his parents have had to move house to be nearer the motorway.
The 1994 Young Musician of the Year will receive a bursary of £2,500 and a travel award from competition sponsors Lloyds
Bank. HRH the Duchess of Kent will present the prizes.
You can register your own vote at the end of the concerto final. Lines will open after the five performances have been heard.

: Golf: the Masters

Tonight, live from Augusta, Georgia,
Bernhard Langer will eitherjoin Jack Nicklaus and Nick Faldo as a successful defender of the Augusta
Masters, or he will help his successor into sport's most celebrated item of gents' outfitting - the coveted green jacket awarded to the winner of this unique "by invitation only" major tournament.
After three-and-a-half days of rising tension the final back nine holes - particularly the "Amen Corner" of the 1 lth, 12thand 13th where Langer sealed last year's title - will decide the competition.
But negotiate this cluster successfully and further traps await those whose nerve is beginning to wilt. There are the deceptive greens at 14 and 17, the waterthat guards the 15th green and replaces the 16th fairway, and finally the daunting 18th. This most beautiful of courses can be the most cruel.
Commentary by Peter Alliss ,
Alex Hay and Dave Marr. Play Is introduced by Steve Rider.
As golf coverage Is live, subsequent programmes may run late.

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.
