: The Bloke Next Door

A Film Portrait of Ken Clarke
Kenneth Clarke is the bookmakers' choice as next Tory leader, and in the latest of Michael Cockerell 's film portraits he talks about his life, beliefs and ambitions.
"All politicians have strong views about television," says Cockerell, "and I've developed this technique of showingthem TV clips of their lives, which can produce very revealing reactions. Clarke is the first serving cabinet minister to agree to be filmed watching past triumphs and gaffes."
Clarke notes his slimline self and sideboards that" nearly meet under my chin" in his first television appearance, is surprised by a clip of his wife ironing his shirts, and hears Mrs Thatcher describing the part that Clarke and his colleagues played in her downfall as "treachery with a smile on its face".
"I just think it's sad she says that," is his reaction, "because it's absolute baloney." Producer Clive Edwards
Editor Anne Tyerman

: Golf: US Open

Tickets were sold out months ago for this, one of the greatest tests of golfing nerve and skill, and a crowd of 22,500 will be on hand to salute today's winner. The prestige of a victory in this tournament is backed up by a first prize of$320,000. Lee Trevino once paid tribute to the around-the-year excellence of this year's venue, the Oakmont course near
Pittsburgh, by saying: "There's only one course I know of where you can step out and play the US Open right now.... Oakmont."
Lee Janzen will be defending his title on the course where
Jack Nicklaus won his first Open in 1962 (he went on to win three more). in all, Oakmont has staged the tournament six times, most recently in 1983. If an overseas player is to win a trophy that the Americans like to keep to themselves, then
Australian Greg Norman and current European leader
Jose-Maria Olazabal are among the favourites.

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.
