: Golf: the Masters

Live coverage of the third round of the 71st Masters from Augusta, Georgia. The remaining golfers have survived yesterday's cut and will be competing to finish top of the leaderboard, giving them the chance to don the famous green jacket at the end of tomorrow's final round.
At this stage last year, many players' rounds were delayed due to a thunderstorm, and some had to complete the course early on Sunday morning. This break obviously hurt the European golfers, as most fell away from the leaders with only Northern Ireland's Darren Clarke staying in contention. Even Tiger
Woods seemed affected by the break, with an untidy game on the back nine only rescued by a great birdie on the 18th to keep him among the top players going into the final round. Commentary from Peter Alliss , Ken Brown , Wayne Grady and Sam Torrance. Introduced by Gary Lineker. See tomorrow's choice. Producer Kate McKeag ; Exec producer Paul Davies (HD)

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.
