Review of the Sporting Year

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.
'Sport without morality is no sport at all.'
The problem of drug abuse cast a shadow over the Olympics, but how much did it damage the credibility of sport in general and the Games in particular?
On the domestic front, Britain's golfers proved themselves to be among the best in the world, while for British footballers and cricketers it was nearly all gloom and doom. And how will posterity assess Mike Tyson's year, as spectacular out oftheringasinit?
Ian Darke looks back over
12 months that were never short of incident or controversy. Producer JOANNE WATSON

Review of the Sporting Year

BBC Radio 2, 24 December 1988 18.00






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.
