The Davis Cup


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.
A relay from the Challenge Round of the Davis Cup at Wimbledon.
In addition, the programmes between 3.0 and 4.0 will be interrupted for short relays from Wimbledon.
"In my opinion, much of the fascination of television, and to a great extent its future, is bound up with actuality, a virtue which it alone possesses, and which the news-reel, with its time-lag, misses. In direct television the viewer will learn and appreciate that the picture he is watching in his home is the picture he would be seeing at that very moment were he with the camera, and not one that has already taken place." These words of the Director of Television, written in April, have had particular significance during the last few weeks, when transmissions of tennis from Wimbledon have been a regular feature of the programmes.
Viewers are reminded that on July 26 and July 27, when normal programmes have been suspended, there will be transmissions from Wimbledon of the Davis Cup between 3 p.m. and 4 p.m., with, if necessary, an extension to 4.30 p.m. This means, therefore, that viewers will have an opportunity of seeing something of all three days of the Davis Cup Challenge Round, instead of the first day only, as was originally contemplated.

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.
