: Waggoners' Walk

When times arc hard sacrifices are made - Mr Tulley must decide the future of his boatyard, Liz must decide whether Debbie can cope at the Herald. But for light relief, Waggoners' Walk assembles this week for the all-night UFO sky-watch. Donald Fitzroy unveils his detecting equipment to an admiring Arthur; a sceptical Maurice paces the Heath; an enthusiastic Gray receives a friendly visitor ... but not from outer space. Shirley receives a too friendly visitor, and George receives a visitor for dinner ... but something startling puts him off his food.

Live commentary on this Home International championship game.
After opening their title defence against Wales on Saturday, ENGLAND bid to keep up an impressive sequence against the Irish - just one defeat in this fixture in the last 22 years.
Ron Greenwood 's team put five past Ireland in their last meeting - a win that helped put them into the European Championship finals in Italy next month. But they may find the opposition tougher tonight, under the new managership of Billy Bingham.

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.
