To Fly Like a Bird
For years, pioneer flyer
Gunter Roshelt has striven to crack the secret of a bird's flight. He's tried everything, from solar energy to his own son's muscle power.
But it was not until he flew across the Danube using a craft designed 170 years ago, that he got his latest inspiration. If birds fold their wings, then so should he. But would they work?

Introduced by Steve Rider Live International Boxing from Wembley
The career of Michael Watson , the young middleweight from Islington with the big punch, could take off tonight. He tops the bill at a major venue for the first time, and he's matched over ten rounds with 'Dangerous' Don Lee of the USA, the man who stopped Tony Sibson in 1984. Gary Mason and Mark Kaylor are the other big names on this Barrett/Duff promotion, which also features the British Light Middleweight Championship fight, over 12 rounds, between
Gary Cooper and Michael Harris. Commentator
HARRY CARPENTER
Cram Goes for Gold
To crown a glittering athletics career, Steve Cram aims to capture in Seoul the one gold medal which has so far eluded him - the 1500 metres Olympic title. Tonight he looks back on his two previous finals, in Moscow and Los Angeles, and has a word of warning for those who are ready to write him off after his world championship defeat in Rome.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
