The remaining third-round ties in the UK Championship, played over a maximum 17 frames, get underway in York, introduced by Hazel Irvine ,
Steve Davis and John Parrott.
At this stage last year there were wins for Stephen Hendry , Ken Doherty , Peter Ebdon , Mark Williams , John Higgins , Ronnie O'Sullivan and Drew Henry- but the shock of the round was Robert Milkins 's victory over Matthew Stevens in a nail-biting clash that ended 9-8. The Englishman's glee proved short-lived, however, when he crashed out 9-4 in the quarter-final to world champion Peter Ebdon. (S)

Few moments in history have stunned the world more than John F Kennedy 's assassination in Dallas 40 years ago.
The latest in the series recalling earth-shattering historical events is a minute-by-minute reconstruction of the shooting and its immediate aftermath. Contributors include the family standing closest to JFK when the bullet struck, the surgeon who tried saving his life and his assistant press secretary -the man who had to tell America that its young president, arguably the most popular ever, had been killed.

: Can't Take It with You

No one knew how much Andy Warhol was worth when the iconic artist died in 1987, and a canny lawyer grabbed his 15 minutes of fame by immediately claiming two per cent of his estate - only to be taken to court in a trial that gripped New York. Warhol's bequest was to establish a foundation for the visual arts, but it's debatable whether his final legacy has been fulfilled as he would have wished.

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.
