London's Marathon


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 logistics of filming this colourful event are awesome: more than 30 fixed cameras, four mobile cameras, three helicopters and a motorbike cover every angle as more than
35,000 people run the 26 miles from Greenwich Park to the Mall.
Last year's winners
Eamonn Martin and Katrin Dorre are taking part again but the Chinese competitors WangJunxia and Qu Yunxia are threateningto give Ddrre a run for her money.
Of course, many people are running to raise money for charity, including celebrities such as Casualty's Cathy Shipton as well as hundreds of ordinary people who hope to finish despite their fancy dress. Commentary by David Coleman , Brendan Foster ,
Paul Dickenson and Richard Nerurkar.
Producers Martin Hopkins and Martin Webster
Editor Dave Gordon (Coverage continues at 12.35pm)

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.
