: Wimbledon 85

The Lawn Tennis Championships
MARTINA NAVRATILOVA , the defending champion, begins the defence of her title on the Centre Court and few will doubt her ability to win for the sixth time in eight years. Last year she won the coveted Grand Slam (and with it one million dollars) and she comes to these great Championships seemingly unbeatable on the grass.
However, 127 others will be trying to prove she isn't and they include CHRIS LLOYD , a three-time winner here and the conqueror of Navratilova in the final of the French Championship a fortnight ago. Since that victory Lloyd has been named the world's number one and the competition between these two great players will be fierce.

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.
