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.
Live coverage of the second day's play from south-west London, where, weather permitting, the first round of the singles will be nearing its conclusion.
At this stage last year, defending ladies champion
Serena Williams of the USA had little trouble dispensing of Jie Zheng of China 6-3, 6-1. In the men's event, Russia's Marat Safin , seeded 19, consolidated his mediocre record at the All England Club as he lost 6-4, 5-7, 3-6, 6-7 to tournament newcomer and fellow Russian Dmitry Tursunov.
Meanwhile British number one Tim Henman began his first match in tentative fashion, losing the opening set 4-6 to Spain's Ruben Ramirez Hidalgo. After snatching the second set on a tie-break, the British number five seed took control of the next two, bagging a four-set victory and a clash with Switzerland's Ivo Heuberger in the second round.
Introduced by Sue Barker. Commentary by, among others, Chris Bradnam , Peter Fleming , Jason Goodall , Phil Jones , Louise Pleming , Simon Reed ,

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.
