Adam Buxton and Joe Cornish start coverage of this year's festival, which will feature all the major acts from the three main stages as well as special guests. Acts featured tonight include Coldplay, Faithless, Nelly Furtado, Ozomatli and, making their UK debut, Shibisashirazu Orchestra, a 33-piece Japanese musical extravaganza.

There'll be fun in the sun or will it be mud? - as Glastonbury again plays host to the highlight of the festival season

Glastonbury 2002 7.30pm BBC Choice/11.35pm BBC2
After a year's absence, the Glastonbury Festival, which for many music lovers is not only the highlight of the festival season, but also the highlight of the year, is back.
Both BBC2 and BBC Choice will be running extensive coverage of this near-legendary event from a farmer's field in one of the most "mystical" parts of the country. Unless you really must taste the atmosphere in person (and chance the whole thing turning into a grotesque mud bath if the weather turns nasty), watching it on television is surely the most civilised way of enjoying the festival.
On Choice, our hosts will be comedians and music fans Adam and Joe - best known to Channel 4 viewers for their mad evocations of Hollywood blockbusters using toy animals. The pair will speak to the artists and members of the audience and coverage will run, on and off and interspersed with other programmes, throughout the evening.
As ever, there's an eclectic range of acts lined up for the weekend. The newly cool Rolf Harris appears, as do Rod Stewart, Isaac Hayes (now familiar to a whole new generation as the priapic Chef in South Park) and Pink Floyd's Roger Waters.
Anyone who prefers their music a bit more up to date will doubtless welcome Coldplay, the Charlatans and Orbital.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
