: On the Line: Boxing Clever

Business has always come naturally to Barry Hearn. "I'm a great operator," he says. "The reason why? It's all heart. I really believe in what I do."
Duringthe boom years of snooker Hearn and his Matchroom stable were the dominant force, built around the success of Steve Davis. "The BBC started networking a lot of snooker and I was just sitting there running the biggest chain of snooker clubs in the country," says Hearn. "It would have been more of an achievement to fail, quite frankly."
He signed such other stars as Terry Griffiths, Cliff Thorburn, Dennis Taylor and Jimmy White, and effectively became the strongest voice influencing the way snooker was run.
Now representing four boxing champions, Hearn aims for control of another sport. But as his snooker interests wane, Hearn is finding that boxing is a tougher world.
For three months an On the Line crew followed Hearn as he hustled his way through the boxing jungle. He remains ebullient and confident. "I run my life as I want to run it, so I'm only interested in winners."

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.
