Champagne, smoked salmon and a guaranteed seat on the Centre Court for the men's final at Wimbledon?
No problem, and it won't cost you a penny if you are a favoured client of almost any British company.
Frank Keating , author and sports writer for the Guardian, investigates the newest 'loadsamoney' boom industry in British sport - corporate hospitality.
He visits Wimbledon, Ascot, Henley and the Lord's Test Match, talks to the new millionaires who lay on the corporate entertainment, and the business people who would rather clinch a deal than watch the wretched sport. 'We have all the best tickets,' says a corporate man. 'But we pray for rain.' Photography MICHAEL MILES Sound MICHAEL LAX

: After Adlard Coles

The first of three programmes in which
Paul Heiney cruises the Solent in his gaff-cutter the Grace O'Malley. It's 50 years since the yachtsman and author K. ADLARD COLES first published his famous guide to these popular waters, and the changes that have taken place since then have been reflected in the numerous updated editions of his book. But it's the first edition that provides Heiney's inspiration, as he sets sail to discover how the Solent has fared at the hands of developers and visitors; and to consider what the future may hold for those who live around its shores.

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.
