Athletics from Crystal Palace The Kraft Games Olympic Trials
For those of Britain's athletes on the verge of the International team, this weekend or next could be the most important of their career.
This is the last chance they have to impress the selectors and earn a place in the Olympic team due to be announced on 14 June.
With only three places available in each event, performances at these games could be decisive, and a number of top class athletes will be unlucky.
The events have been spread over two weekends to allow competitors to try for more than one event, and on this first weekend ALAN PASCOE , STEVE OVETT , ANDREA LYNCH , SONIA LANNAMAN and IAN STEWART are among the star names competing.
Organised by the BAAB in association with Kraft Foods.

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, and programmes to purchase.

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.
