The XV Olympic Winter Games Introduced by Desmond Lynam Alpine Ski-ing
Today's women's slalom at Nakiska is perhaps the most open of all the alpine ski-ing events at these games. Yugoslavia's
MATEJA SVET should figure prominently, however, in the live coverage of this first run. At last year's World
Championships in Crans
Montana, Britain's
LESLEY BECK finished tenth, and any improvement on that today would be a tremendous boost for British ski-ing. You can see the second run in Olympic Report tonight at
Figure Skating
Highlights of the ladies short programme at the Olympic Saddledome. Not since the pre-war days of Sonja Henie has a woman won successive individual Olympic titles, but KATARINA WITT is hoping to triumph here just as she did in Sarajevo. JOANNE CONWAY can confirm her great potential with her performance today.

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.
