: CORBETT-FITZSIMMONS

The famous fight of 1897, described by J. H. Squire
When J. H. Squire was scarcely seventeen he found himself in Carson City, Nevada, witnessing a boxing match that is perhaps the most famous ever fought. In it 35-year-old Bob Fitzsimmons , middleweight champion of the world and only 11 st. 6 lb. in weight, fought J. J. Corbett , world heavyweight champion and over two stone heavier.
The fight was one of the fiercest in history, and right up to the eventful fourteenth round it looked as though Corbett could not fail to win. But Fitzsimmons fought back, and produced a body punch that put Corbett out and won Fitzsimmons, a middleweight, the heavyweight championship of the world.

: AT HOME TO SPORTSMEN

A magazine programme of sports gossip, prospects, reminiscences
No broadcast in this series has had more topical and important appeal. Graham Walker, who was a despatch rider himself throughout the last war, is bringing to the microphone despatch riders who have been on active service both in the last war and in this.
Graham Walker has been broadcasting regularly since 1933, and since that year has given every commentary on the Isle of Man T.T. races. He is recruiting despatch riders in the present war and has already enlisted over 1,000 motor-cyclists.

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.
