: Farnborough 86

The world's major aerospace companies have been showing their wares all week to potential buyers at this international air show and exhibition. New aircraft and armaments as well as innovative aerospace ideas are on display at this biennial event. Highlights of the show are the two new experimental aircraft - France's Rafale and British Aerospace's EAP, as well as the RAF Red Arrows. Which Airborne Early
Warning system should the RAF buy? Will it be GEC's Nimrod or the Boeing consortium's E-3 AWACS? Or maybe an outsider will win this lucrative contract. Can rival aerospace companies successfully compete and, then 'go to bed' over engine and airframe contracts?
Chris Serle and Raymond Baxter host the programme and try to find the answers to these questions and guide you through the displays of static and flying aircraft. Engineering managers

: Songs of Praise

From the South Downs.

Nestling in the Cuckmere Valley, on the eastern edge of the Sussex Downs, is the village of Alfriston. The annual village festival is a time when the locals enjoy themselves with a tug-of-war, wellie-throwing, river races and all the fun of the fair.
They end the day by singing their favourite hymns on the village green.
This year Christians from all over the South Downs are also taking Part. Many will be walking to the event, like pilgrims of previous ages who passed through Alfriston on their way to Canterbury.
Sally Magnusson meets villagers and pilgrims who choose their favourite songs of praise.
Shall we gather at the river? (Lowry); To be a pilgrim (Monks Gate); Fight the good fight (Duke Street); How comely the evening (Elgar); Fair waved the golden corn (Carlisle); Lord of the dance; The Lord's my shepherd (Crimond); Jerusalem (Parry).

: Heart of the Matter

with David Lomax
Week by week as the events of the news unfold, moral dilemmas, controversies and questions are raised which cannot easily be compressed into the black and white summary of a bulletin or headline. But these questions of public and private morality affect us all and inflame passions and prejudices many of us would rather ignore or try to hide.
Reporter David Lomax looks at one of these issues, talks to those who ought to know and tries to discover what is at the 'heart of the matter'. Film editor MICHAEL ALOOF

: Grand Prix

The 1986 Formula One World Championship Italian Grand Prix
Today in Italy, defending
World Champion ALAIN PROST was expected to provide further proof that he is not giving up his title without a fight. His victory last time out in Austria took him to within two points of championship leader NIGEL MANSELL. As the Williams driver struggles to regain his mid-season form he may well reflect that the man who took the Monza laurels last year was ... Alain Prost. The Brazilian pair of NELSON PIQUET and AYRTON SENNA will also want to get back on the winner's rostrum after the 51 laps of today's race around this classic Milanese circuit. Commentators

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.
