Olympic Grandstand


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.
7.30 Women's 4 x 400m, first round
8.05Men's3,000m steeplechase final
8.30 Women's 10,000m final
Liz McColgan , world 10,000m champion, sets out on a 30-odd minute journey tonight, hoping to add Olympic gold to her magnificent win in Tokyo. The 10,000m was only introduced as an Olympic women's event in 1988 - for years, international athletics authorities believed women's bodies were "not designed" for the rigours of long-distance running! Proving them wrong in Seoul, McColgan had to settle for silver behind
Olga Bondarenko. Can she go one better tonight?
Plus the final of the men's
3,000m steeplechase, an event dominated by Kenya. And an update on the pole vault final. ● FEATURE: page 23
The final of the women's tournament from the Terrassa Stadium. Defending champions
Australia, and world champions Holland, are the favourites to reach the final from the eight-team tournament.
Commentary by Barry Davies , Nigel Starmer-Smith and Cathy Harris.

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.
