: Wimbledon 83

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.
JIMMY CONNORS , as defending champion, has the honour of opening play on the Centre Court. Since his first Wimbledon title in 1974 Connors has compiled a remarkable record in the tournament, reaching the final three times and the semi-finals three times; but last year's triumph over JOHN MCENROE was only his second win. McEnroe comes to Wimbledon after one of his least successful years but recent victories over the Czech IVAN LENDL have boosted his belief that he, too, can win a second title. Lendl has not enjoyed the grass courts of Wimbledon in past visits but is determined to prove that his ranking as the world's number one is justified.
They are just three of the 128 contenders for the most prestigious title in tennis. Harry Car penter introduces BBC's live coverage during the championships and keeps you up to date with news and results from all 18 match courts.
Bjorn Borg , five times winner of the championship, joins the BBC team throughout the fortnight with his expert views and opinions on play.

Life After Debt
The world is awash with debt. Developing countries owe bankers in London and New York hundreds of billions which they can't pay back. Even finding cash to pay the interest often means harsh austerity for their people.
But the largest debtors have a weapon the bankers dread. They could choose to default, and trigger off a banking collapse which would undermine hopes of an economic recovery.
Anthony Sampson , known worldwide for his reporting behind the closed doors of international institutions, shows how close to catastrophe we have been, and analyses the growing threat from the debtors' weapon.

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.
