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.
Liz "McGolden" McColgan, arguably Britain's brightest gold medal hope on the track, and team-mate Jill Hunter seek a comfortable journey through the heats of the women's 10,000m before getting down to more serious business in next Friday's final. McColgan, a relentlessly determined frontrunner, was Britain's only individual gold medallist at last year's world championships, and went on to be named BBC Sports Personality of the Year.
Plus a roundup of the other action, on the day that the men's 100m final was run.
Britain's Linford Christie was looking to improve on his silver medal in Seoul four years ago. Has he succeeded in his bid to become the oldest man ever to win the Olympic 100m title? And in the rowing, Steve Redgrave was trying to make it three gold medals in three successive Games by winning the coxless pairs with his new partner, the talented Oxford blue Matthew Pinsent.

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.
