: Wimbledon 88

Lawn Tennis Championships from the All England Club The ladies' championship, which is always the feature of the second afternoon at
Wimbledon, will again provide a platform for the game's two greatest players. The first is the champion MARTINA NAVRATILOVA , holder of eight singles titles, including the last six in a row. On the Wimbledon grass, which suits her style, she has lost only two singles out of her last 68 matches.
But this may be the year that STEFFI GRAF, just 19, wins for the first time. The West
German is now ranked number one in the world, and will have learnt much from defeat in last year's final.
Among the supporting cast is the talented GABRIELA
SABATINI, a quarter-finalist last year, while the American CHRIS EVERT will receive an emotional welcome in what may be her last appearance at the Championships.
HARRY CARPENTER introduces the live coverage, and provides news and results from all today's matches.

: The Lowdown: Jobs for the Boys

Last of six programmes.
The fast-moving story of an annual event that involves over half a million boys throughout the country, Scout Job Week.
In April this year they were raising money for their organisation by cleaning Concorde at Heathrow, others were in a gang show in Glasgow, and a few even had a trip on the maiden voyage of HMS Sheffield. So what was once called 'Bob-a-Job' week has seen some big changes along with Scouting itself. From boys in Belfast, overcoming religious differences, to refugees from Vietnam in Handsworth it goes to show it's not all 'dyb, dyb, dyb'.

Derek Jameson is joined by reporters Jeni Barnett, Lucy Pilkington and Chris Serle, all searching for extraordinary stories, strange tales and heartwarming successes. This week Chris finds himself in a Yorkshire river up to his knees in mud with a bailiff, a Lord of the Manor and a First World War bugler. What are they up to? And guest reporter John Pitman tracks down Alison Baker, the 11-year-old he filmed in 1974 who had set her heart on being a concert pianist. Did she make it?
And there will be plenty of surprises as Derek goes out and about asking people - maybe even you - 'Hope and Glory! What's your story?'

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.
