Edinburgh 1986 [ntroduced by Desmond Lynam
Including at 1.30 News Headlines
A suitably long programme to accommodate the second and third longest events in the Games - the Marathons. The Men begin at 11.0 am - the winners should finish at about 1.8 pm - and the Women start at 11.30 am and will appear back in the stadium shortly before 2.0. The winners - ROB DE
CASTELLA and anyone's guess. Other finals this afternoon in the Pole Vault, Women's
Long Jump, Women's High Jump, Men's Discus and Women's 100m Hurdles, plus Relay heats, and the 1500m men and women aim for the big one on Saturday.
The final matches in the Men's Singles (Willie Wood is champion), the Women's
Pairs and Fours (they're new events this time) and the Men's Fours (Australia are defending).
Medals for all winners of the play-offs this afternoon. The finals start tonight.
Finals here too tonight, so the grip is definitely tightening.
Centre Fire Pistols and the Skeet final.

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.
