: The London Marathon

Sponsored by Mars
Once again marathon fever grips the capital city and for a few hours the roar of the traffic is replaced by the sound of thousands of feet making the now classic journey from Greenwich Park to Westminster Bridge.
In its seventh year, the appeal of the 26 mile, 385 yard run shows no signs of diminishing. A record entry of nearly 28,000, from a total of 76,699 applications, means that this year's event will again be the biggest marathon in the world.
Among the competitors are serious athletes like
HUGH JONES and CHARLIE SPEDDING , both previous winners, and Norway's INGRID KRISTIANSEN , who could become the first woman to finish a marathon inside two hours 20 minutes. But as well, there are the fun runners, the men and women whose achievement will be merely finishing the course and raising thousands of pounds for charity.
Live coverage of the whole race with commentary by DAVID COLEMAN. RON PICKERING and BRENDAN FOSTER , and additional reporting by STUART STOREY. BOB WILSON and KEVIN COSGROVE

: Praise Be!

With Thora Hird.

Thora's back for her llth season of presenting viewers' favourite Songs of Praise.

The first programme is a celebration of the wide variety of music featured over the past year; ranging from 'The day thou gavest, Lord, is ended' sung by Christians in the morning sunshine of Tonga, to a modern hymn sung by the new-city dwellers of Milton Keynes.

Thora continues her exploration of old and new when she visits Noel Tredinnick, Musical Director of All Souls, Langham Place, and talks to him about the problems of combining the two in worship.

Let all the world in every corner sing (Luckington); Come, let us join our cheerful songs (Nativity); O happy day!; Angel-voices ever singing (Angel voices); This is the day; You are my hiding place; Y tangnefeddwyr; The day thou gavest, Lord is ended (St Clement); I'll go in the strength of the Lord.

Director: Valetta Stallabrass
Producer: Christopher Mann

: When I Get to Heaven

The Rt Rev Richard Holloway talks to Jonathan Miller.
For Jonathan Miller our lives end with death and our identity is inextricably linked with the physical body. But he finds that the concepts of heaven and hell throw a fascinating light upon his own hopes and fears and upon the human mind and spirit.
In the third of six programmes he tells Richard Holloway his own thoughts about death and the 'hereafter'.

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.
