The Lawn Tennis Championships
The opening day of the world's greatest tennis tournament direct from the All England Club.
Featuring the first round of the Men's Singles Championship
This afternoon, for the first time, John McEnroe , as defending champion, has the honour of opening play on the Centre Court. Since 1977 the remarkable Swede, Bjorn Borg , has monopolised this traditional start to the Championship but after his defeat by the volatile American in last year's final and his subsequent decision not to enter in 1982 McEnroe will be the centre of attention throughout the fortnight. Among his 127 rivals will be former champion Jimmy Connors who, with Borg, provided an epic semi-final match last year, and the latest Swedish sensation Mats Wilander , who at 17 became the youngest-ever winner of the French Open. For the first time the Men's Final is scheduled for Sunday, extending the tournament to 13 days of top-class tennis. Harry Carpenter introduces BBC's live coverage during the Championships and keeps you up to date with news and results from all 18 match courts.

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.
