: Golf: Ryder Cup

Highlights from the Belfry in Sutton Coldfield of the opening day of the 34th Ryder Cup. A total of eight points are at stake in today's foursomes and four-ball matches.
As a consequence of last year's events in New York on 11 September, the start of this biennial tournament, in which a team of the top players from Europe take on their American counterparts, was postponed until today.
In the 1999 showdown, the US team, trailing by four points after two days of play, produced one of the most thrilling final-day comebacks in the history of the competition. This year they have the world's number one in Tiger Woods and the 2001 Open champion David Duval in their 12-strong team, while the Europeans will be heartened by the recent performances of Thomas Bjorn and Sergio Garcia.
With Steve Rider. Commentary from Peter Alliss , Ken Brown , and Alex Hay , plus reports from Julian Tutt and Phil Jones. Executive producers Paul Davies and Barbara Slater www.bbc.co.uk/golf

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
