The final two tungsten titans are ready to battle it out at the Lakeside World Professional Darts championship for a F85,000 cheque.

That wasn't before a huge scare, however, as Nixon fought back from 6-0 down to level the game, but Adams kept his cool in the deciding set and took the match 7-6. Commentary from Tony Green and David Croft. <s)

Built in 1852, San Quentin is one of America's oldest state prisons and suffers from chronic overcrowding. Although famous for its death row, the institution's main task is to house a transient population of 3,000 murderers, sexual predators and small-time criminals. In this compelling documentary, Louis Theroux spends two weeks with these inmates and quickly discovers that they inhabit a strange world within a world, with its own rules and a brutal code of conduct.

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.
