: The Olympiad

The Decathlon
The Decathlon is the supreme test of the all-round athlete and, after the Marathon, the event which comes closest to the Olympic ideal. Ten events in only two days, embracing speed, strength, courage and endurance demands that only the super athlete can hope to achieve the gold medal.
On the first day the athletes contest the 100m, long-jump, shot-put, high-jump and end the day with the 400m. Day two involves the 100m hurdles, discus, pole-vault, javelin and ends with the gruelling 1590m.
Over. the years this competition has produced some epic feats of athleticism, among them the performance of JIM THORPE , the American Indian who dominated the event in 1912; BOB MATHIAS , who at the age of 21, won his second Decathlon gold; and the thrilling struggle between c. K. YANG of Formosa and RAFER JOHNSON in 1960, when the gold medal was decided by a matter of yards.

: A Window on Washington

The BBC1 Documentary A return visit by Patrick O'Donovan
' Washington is more than a capital city. It is a place devoted to government as a monastery is to prayer. It heaves with rumours and boils with information. No political man can resist it.'
PATRICK O'DONOVAN spent many years there reporting for The Observer. On the eve of Bicentennial Year he returned, after an absence of ten years, to find out how the Washington of the post-Vietnam, post-Watergate era had changed from the city he knew. America has suffered three major shocks: a lost war, a disgraced President and a major recession. But, says Patrick O'Donovan , power still runs into Washington like gold into a crucible. It is still good for a European, be he despairing or complacent, to go there.

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 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 find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

This is a historical record of both 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.
