: Golf: the Open

Live action from the second round of the Open which returns to Royal Lytham and StAnne's for the tenth time. This short but demanding par-71 course has been the site of many of the tournament's memorable moments, among them Tony Jacklin 's 1969 triumph which launched a revival of British golf and Seve Ballesteros 's infamous drive into parked cars from the 16th tee in 1979. Nick Faldo led the European challenge when the Open was held here five years ago, finishing fourth behind Mark McCumber , Ernie Els and champion Tom Lehman. In this Ryder Cup year, Europe's leading golfers will be doubly keen to make a strong impression although all eyes will be on Tiger Woods after his 19-under-par victory at St
Andrews last year. Presented by Steve Rider with commentary by Peter Alliss , Alex Hay , Ken Brown , Beverly Lewis , Julian Tutt , Wayne Grady ,
Laura Davies , Mike Hughesdon , plus reports from Dougie Donnelly and Hazel Irvine. Highlights can be seen tonight at 9.40pm. (S)(W) WEBSITE: www.bbc.co.uk/golf including at

: First Night of the Proms

James Naughtie introduces live coverage of the First Night live from London's Royal Albert Hall in a special concert to welcome American-born Leonard Slatkin to his first Prom season as chief conductor of the BBC Symphony Orchestra.
The programme reflects Slatkin's love of British and American music, opening with Benjamin Britten 's overture to his American operetta Paul Bunyan , orchestrated by Colin Matthews , and featuring John Adam 's stunning contemporary choral classic
Harmonium which sets to music poetry by John Donne and Emily Dickinson. The programme also features 16 leading young singers performing Vaughan Williams 's Serenade to Music - originally composed for Prom founder Henry Wood - and the winner of last year's BBC Young Musician competition, Guy Johnston , who makes his Proms debut playing Elgar's much-loved Cello
Concerto. Also broadcast on Radio 3 and on the internet.
During the interval, composer John Adams tells
Charles Hazlewood about his childhood and early musical experiences, his move from the east coast to the west coast, the influence of both the Californian music scene and minimalism, and how, for him, his work in inextricably bound up with America and its landscape.

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.
