Today's timetable
12.5 Motor Racing

1.30 Tennis
5.0 Final Score
(Timings subject to alteration)

If top seeds Martina Navratilova, the hottest favourite for years, and Chris Lloyd (above), the defending champion, emerge to today' final we can expect a battle royal. Twice before, the former Czech left-hander has narrowly beaten Mrs Lloyd at the last hurdle (in 1978 and 1979) but she is never completely confident against double-handed passing shots and the ice-cool temperament of the three-time champion. Perhaps last year's talented finalist, Hana Mandlikova, will go one better. Or will this be the year when Tracey Austin finally proves herself on grass? Or will Pam Shriver, whose serve and volley game is ideal for the surface, finally win a major title? Whoever wins we can be sure that the 89th Lady Champion will receive a rapturous ovation on the world's most famous tennis court. (Dan Maskell)

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.
