Commonwealth Games 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.
With all the familiar pageantry, the Commonwealth uames - the Friendly Games - open in Victoria, Canada, today. It was Canada that hosted the very first such celebration of Commonwealth sport in 1930, when Hamilton was the venue.
This year there will be much interest in the return of South
Africa to Commonwealth competition, and followers of the teams from Britain will hope that stars such as England's Linford Christie and Sally Gunnell and Wales's Colin
Jackson have enough in the energy bank for such an important event after a particularly busy season.
England top the all-time medal table with 1,156 (420 of them gold) but this could change in Canada - Australia's bag since 1930 is just three medals lighter. Introduced by Sue Barker. Executive producer Martin Hopkins Editor Brian Barwick

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.
