An eye-witness account of the Association football match by J. W. McConnell
The Glentoran Football Club was founded in 1882, and is known throughout Belfast as the East-End Club. Its present home is at the Oval, the fifth ground it has had in the city. The four other grounds have had to be sacrificed to the demands of the city's expansion.
The Cliftonville Club, founded in 1879, is the premier amateur football club in Ireland, and the only Irish club ever to have competed for the English Amateur Cup. The present ground was taken over in the season 1889-90.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
