Wimbledon 80

Synopsis

We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
The Lawn Tennis Championships direct from the All England Club
The opening day of the world's greatest tennis tournament features the First Round of the Men's Singles Championship.
Who can stop Sweden's BJORN BORG making it five Wimbledon Singles' titles in a row? All the great names will try-including JIMMY CONNORS , JOHN MCENROE , VITAS GERULAITIS and ROSCOE TANNER , who gave Borg such a marvellous contest in last year's final. And keep an eye on three young players Borg himself has tipped for future honours: IVAN LENDL (Czechoslovakia), JOHAN KRlEK
(S Africa), YANNICK NOAH (France); while JOHN SADRI (USA), with serves of over 130 mph, could topple the best on his day.
Commentators DAN MASKELL , PETER WEST JOHN BARRETT, MARK COX, NEALE FRASER and BILL THRELFALL.
Harry Carpenter keeps you up-to-date with news and results from all Wimbledon's 18 match courts.

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.
