More Than a Game

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.
Last in the series examining the state of modern-day sport. Whose Game Is It Anyway? Taking part is what counts, says the old Olympic maxim, and for many people, from Central Park to Hackney
Marshes, participation is the name of the game. But a new British survey shows children are less fit than they were a generation ago, and resources for sport are drying up worldwide. In the former Soviet Union, organised sport is crumbling with the old regime; in China, the effort is increasingly going into elitist sport; and in the west, television seems to have more supporters than exercise. Tonight's film investigates whether "Sport for All" can ever be more than a dream?

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.
