Athletics from White City: 'News of the World' International Meeting
featuring the women's match between Great Britain and Germany
Great Britain's Olympic team will be picked and announced twenty-two hours after this meeting finishes. It will provide 'positively the last chance' for any athlete to impress his or her claims upon the selectors. The Canadian Olympic team will be present in force for the men's events. The women's events will take the form of an international match against Germany.
Much interest will centre on Mary Rand who will be bidding for selection in the pentathlon (five-event trial) in which she hopes to win a second Olympic Gold Medal in Mexico. All events are being staged over metric distances.

Rugby League Sevens from Wigan
The Rugby League season starts on August 17, and eight of the top teams in the League are taking part in a pre-season 'sevens' tournament which will be staged at the Central Park, Wigan. Rugby League Cup holders, Leeds, will be meeting their host club, Wigan, in the first round. Salford, who won the Leeds 'sevens' competition in May are taking part, and with the fine playing of former Union International Welshman, David Watkins, will be hot contenders. These 'sevens' have become one of the most attractive sports spectacles in the Rugby League calendar and today's match at Wigan will give the official season a warm send-off.

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.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
