The Lawn Tennis Championships direct from the All England Club
While the rest of the international tennis scene still seeks a shape and an identity, the Championships today stride into their second century of what is unassailably the best tennis in the world.
Money alone is not the target for the ambitious young lions of the professional tennis circuit, although over a quarter of a million pounds in prize money is on offer. No, rather it's the distinction of winning tennis's most sought-after title under the toughest conditions. Bjorn Borg will be bidding to become the first man since Fred Perry to win three times in a row when he opens the defence of his singles title on the Centre Court at 2.0 this afternoon, and BBC outside broadcast cameras provide you with ' the best seat in the house.' The magic of the Wimbledon fortnight, the drama being enacted on the show courts, the stories behind the news are reported by DAN MAS KELL, PETER WEST , JOHN BARRETT , BILL THRELFALL and KEN FLETCHER. Harry Carpenter introduces the programme and provides the up-to-date results from the outside courts.

: Panorama

with Charles Wheeler , including Israel's Secret Weapon
An investigation into the secret operations by Israel's intelligence services to get uranium for making the atomic bomb.
Panorama talks to the men involved, sometimes quite unwittingly, in Israel's plans - like the Dane who unknowingly became part-owner of the Scheersberg which ' disappeared' with 200 tons of uranium. In Washington a former CIA agent reveals how the Agency discovered that Israel almost certainly had the bomb and how one source of her nuclear material was probably in the USA itself.

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.
