International Show Jumping from Hickstead featuring
The Edward, Prince of Wales Challenge Cup - Nations' Cup
Teams of four riders from West Germany, Belgium, Holland, Ireland, Spain and Great Britain compete in show jumping's most prestigious annual international team event. The competition is decided over two rounds, the best three scores of each team to count. Introduced by DAVID VINE
Commentators DORIAN WILLIAMS and RAYMOND BROOKS-WARD
International Athletics from Crystal Palace The European Cup Semi-finals (Men)
The second day of competition for a place in the European Cup Finals in Helsinki. Only two countries of the eight competing will qualify, and every athlete will need to be in top form, as the loss of even one point per event could be crucial to the overall team score.
Ten events are contested today, including the 5,000m, 3,000m steeplechase, 800m and the triple jump. The highlights of today's ten events could be the 5,000m which features NICK ROSE of Bristol, selected in preference to Brendan Foster ; and the 3,000m steeplechase.

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.
