: Wimbledon 1977 Cricket: Jubilee Test

The Lawn Tennis Championships
The second day's play direct from the All England Club, featuring
The First Round of the Ladies' Singles
A lot of betting money will be riding on Chris Evert , the defending champion, when she steps on to the Centre Court this afternoon. The girl she beat in 1976, Evonne Cawley , will be missing from the line-up, and her principal adversaries seem to be MARTINA NAVRATILOVA and the British girls, VirGINIA WADE -and SUE BARKER . Sue has played particularly well in the USA this year and is certain to provide plenty of excitement with her attacking game.
But watch out for BILLIE-JEAN KING . She hasn't re-entered the Ladies' Singles just for the fun of it, and a seventh Wimbledon Ladies' title would give her an all-time record of Championship victories.

: The Yard

The inside story of the most famous police headquarters in the world.
Reporter John Clare
It's the home of the Porn Squad and Special Branch, the Drugs
Squad and the Sweeney. It's where they investigate fraud, robbery, terrorism and murder. It was not without its own corruption, until SIR ROBERT MARK began to clean it out. It's never far from the headlines. Officially called Commissioner's Office, it's known everywhere as Scotland Yard.
Tonight's film goes behind the scenes of a murder inquiry, examines the work of the Obscene Publications Squad, talks to policemen who investigate other policemen accused of wrong-doing. It goes on a raid with the Flying Squad, tours the Black Museum, quizzes detectives about carrying guns and the use of informers. It shows for the first time what lies behind the locked doors of the Yard's Operations Room, and explores the disturbing world of police surveillance and computerised record-keeping.

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.
