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.
Introduced by Harry Carpenter direct from Wimbledon
Wimbledon 1971
Today's outstanding matches brought to you as they happen from the Centre Court and No 1 Court of the All England Lawn Tennis Club at the half-way stage of the Championships.
' Wimbledon remains the most treasured title in the game. It is the oldest of all the international championships- the mostreported, the most televised. The word " unique " is used about Wimbledon almost like a first name.' (Arthur Hopcraft on ' sweat, tears and strawberries': p 55)

(Match of the Day: BBC2 at 10.40 pm) at 2.55*
Irish Sweeps Derby from The Curragh Europe's top three-year-olds clash in the tenth running of Ireland's richest race, worth over f 50,000 to the winner. There will be a strong contingent of Epsom Derby runners. These include Linden Tree, attempting to be the first blinkered winner of the Irish Sweeps; Irish Ball; and Lombardo, partnered by Lester Piggott (despite his threat never to ride in Ireland again after the Irish 2,000 Guineas) - who came second, third, and fourth respectively at Epsom.

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.
