The 1979 European Figure Skating Championships from Zagreb featuring The Pairs
The Soviet Union has dominated pairs skating since the early 60s with the incomparable Protopopovs followed by the ten-year reign of Irina Rodnina and her partners, Ulanov and Zaitsev. As Irina awaits the birth of her first child, the battle to succeed her is likely to be between another Soviet pair, the tiny CHERKASOVA and her partner SHAKRAI, last year's silver medallists, and the East Germans, MACER and BEWERS-DORFF. Commentator ALAN WEEKS
Also coverage of the second phase of the Men's Championship - the Short Programme, which is vital to the gold medal hopes of Britain's ROBIN COUSINS. Cricket: Fifth Test
Australia v England from Adelaide: the fourth day's play. Good Darts!

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.
