: Wimbledon 88

Lawn Tennis Championships direct from the All England Club
At two o'clock this afternoon, PAT CASH of Australia, whose victory climb into the arms of his family amazed spectators after last year's final, will settle for a more traditional role. As defending champion, Cash will open play on the Centre Court, as this great tennis tournament gets under way.
Can the extrovert Aussie retain his title, or will this be the year that IVAN LENDL , runner-up in the last two finals, wins Wimbledon for the first time? Can BORIS BECKER , disappointed by PETER DOOHAN last summer, find the form which won him two singles championships? Will JOHN MCENROE return and become a real threat again, or will one of the Swedes - MATS WILANDER or STEFAN EDBERG - become champion at last?

: Adventure - Ring of Fire

A seven-part series about a journey of exploration and adventure among the volcanic islands and coral reefs of the vast Indonesian archipelago.
3: Here Be Dragons
Lome and Lawrence Blair , two young Englishmen, go ashore on remote Komodo Island where, early this century, a horrified explorer found that the age-old myth of oriental dragons was very much a living fact - in the form of enormous carnivorous lizards. There is at least one grave of a visitor who got too close ...
Then sailing on, they reach Sumba Island and witness a veiled form of human sacrifice in a ritual but often deadly battle between opposing armies of mounted spearmen. Film editors

In Wealth We Trust
In his last Budget, Chancellor Lawson gave to those who already had. He cut tax for the well-off.
The Opposition now accuse him of creating a 'loadsamoney' economy - a spendthrift generation, who will not secure the nation's future. The
Government argue that the enterprise culture will spread wealth and encourage a new morality.
Ian Smith asks Britain's millionaires how they will spend their money. Will they be exhorted by the Government and their conscience to give more away in charity to those for whom the heat of the free market is too great?

Take-Over
For over a year, the BBC has had unique access to
Wordplex, a manufacturer of word processors, as it fell prey to three attempts to take it over. In the first of two programmes which reveal the inside story of a take-over, Chief Executive Dr Geoff Bristow fights to save Wordplex as it slides towards bankruptcy. Staff, worried about their jobs, anxiously await the success of Bristow's strategy. But that strategy fails to go through as planned.

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.

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