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.
Presented by Anna Ford with Kim Howells
Tonight's Network looks at sports coverage on television. Are the viewers being provided with the kind of coverage they want, or are sports programmes often boring, superficial and uninformative? How do
British sports journalists compare with their counterparts on foreign television stations? In his film, Simon Inglis maintains that there is much room for improvement, especially in the televising of football. In the studio, a group of viewers and other interested parties discuss the issue with the BBC and ITV heads of sport. Studio director LINDA NASH

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.
