Turnberry course in western Scotland, which last staged it in 1986. Greg Norman was the winner that year, and this week he returns as the current holder, having beaten Nick Faido by two strokes a year ago at Sandwich. This led to the remark by a BBC
Radio commentator that Norman would be "the toast of Sandwich tonight". Introduced by Steve Rider. Producer Alastair Scott

: State of the Ark

Series examining the role of zoos now and in the future.
Playing God? Europe's best zoos can't agree on their role - whether they are there to entertain the public or to preserve wildlife. This second of five programmes explores the philosophies pursued by three of the best: Jersey, the conservation pioneers established by Gerald Durrell ; Emmen, a Dutch zoo dedicated to public entertainment; and Howletts in Kent, a controversial animal sanctuary run by millionaire
John Aspinall. Those who run them all share a love of animals but cannot agree on what defines a "good zoo". Radio Times is seeking viewers' opinions on this issue. To have your say in the great zoo debate, write to Radio Times, 80 Wood Lane , London W12 0TT.

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.
