The first man behind the camera is Dermot Reeve , captain of county champions Warwickshire.
The programme also talks to
Ray Illingworth , Mike Atherton and David Lloyd about the possible paths to success ahead forthe beleaguered English cricket team after a disappointing winter on tour; news of the intriguing ways some cricketers fill the long close season, a review of the dramatic climax to the recent one-day World Cup, and the important changes affecting the new domestic season.

This Life 9.45pm BBC2
Legal whizzkid Warren has been leading a double life - persuading his family back home in Wales that he just hasn't met the right girl yet, while actually living as a gay man in London. The game's up tonight when his pushy cousin Kira accidentally catches him in flagrante with another man, prompting Warren to confess all. Meanwhile Egg has made the big break - he's left the law, and is trying to get a job as a sports journalist. So far, however, his great new plan hasn't amounted to much: he spends all day sitting in front of the television watching football videos.

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.

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.
