The Lawn Tennis Championships featuring
The First Round of The Ladies' Singles
The Champion, the Czech-born American Martina Navratilova , opens the defence of her title on the Centre Court. Her greatest threat is likely to come from the girl she beat in the final last year, the newly married Chris Evert -Lloyd. The American, who has been in four of the last six finals, will be determined to win her third Championship; while young Tracy Austin has already beaten all the top players. The presence of the popular Evonne Cawley is sure to please her many Wimbledon followers. The delightful Australian won the title eight years ago as Miss Goolagong, and has been a losing finalist three times since. British hopes rest mainly with the Centenary champion, Virginia Wade , and Sue Barker , who reached the semi-finals two years ago.

: Gold on Ice

Omnibus presents a portrait of Robin Cousins , one of the best free-skaters in the world.
Bristol-bern Cousins has repeatedly won his accolade, but so far the overall championship gold medal has escaped him.
We see him in Colorado on a rigorous training programme under Olympic coach Carlo Fassi , and at the Wembley Centenary Ice Gala where Cousins and John Carry talk about the showbusiness side of skating.
Preparations for this year's World Championship in Vienna are followed by a filmed record of the whole event - a unique opportunity to see what television skating coverage usually misses out.
We follow the tensions of the compulsory figures - the event Cousins most dreads - and bear his own thoughts about his performance in the short and long free-skating programme.
Will the coveted gold medal at last be his at the next Olympics - or remain ' on ice' even longer?

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.
