: Sports Review of 1976

featuring the presentation to the Sports Personality of the Year by The Rt Hon The Earl Mountbatten of Burma
For the 23rd year, the leading names of sport gather together in the BBC Television Theatre to relive the outstanding events and performances of the year.
1976: the year of the Olympic Games. At the Winter Olympics in Innsbruck John Curry won the gold medal in the men's figure skating event. In Montreal David Wilkie won gold and silver in the swimming pool. Britain's modern pentathletes and yachtsman Reg White also won gold medals for
Britain. Nadia Comaneci was the perfect gymnast. Lasse Viren proved himself one of the greatest athletes of all time.
Motor Racing: James Hunt took the World Championship from Niki Lauda in the last Grand Prix of the most controversial season in the history of the sport.
Cricket: The West Indies revelled in the Caribbean conditions they found here this summer.
Horse Racing: gallant Red Rum just failed to become the first horse to win three Grand Nationals.
Motor Cycling: Barry Sheene won the World 500cc title.
1976 produced not only the drought, but great sporting occasions. Bjorn Borg won his first Wimbledon title: Johnny Miller won the British Open by six strokes; Peter Collins won the World Individual Speedway title; Muhammad Ali gained the most controversial victory of his career. Tonight's programme features action from more than a dozen sports, and presentations to The Team of the Year The Outstanding
Overseas Personality
Introduced by Frank Bough and Harry Carpenter

: * The Sky at Night

The Evening Star
This winter Venus is a brilliant object in the evening sky. It is very like the Earth in size and mass, and until the Space Age it was thought to be capable of supporting life in some form. Nowadays we know that Venus is a hostile world, but there are still many questions to be answered.
Patrick Moore talks about this strange planet, and describes the latest studies which confirm that Venus has a heavily cratered surface.

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.

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