: London's Marathon

Once again marathon fever grips the capital, as more than 25,000 athletes make the now classic journey from Greenwich Park to
Westminster Bridge.
The men's entry for the ADT London Marathon is the most impressive yet. It includes the world champion
Douglas Wakiihuri of Kenya, the runner-up in Rome,
Ahmed Salah of Djibouti, and Rob de Castella, twice the Commonwealth champion. Favourite for the women's race is Aurora Cunha of Portugal.
But as well as the serious athletes running for prize money of over E250,000, today is. about the fun runners - the men and women who will be pleased merely to complete the 26-mile (and 385-yard) course and raise thousands of pounds for charity.
Live coverage of the whole race, with commentary by RON PICKERING and BRENDAN FOSTER Technical co-ordination

: Country File

Pigs have everything going for them except good PR.
They are branded fat, greedy and rude, but in reality they are gregarious and, well.... cute. Why else would people have erected mock-Grecian temples in their honour, buried them in gold caskets and immortalised them in verse?
Chris Baines sets out to explore the curious relationship between people and pigs with the help of a film-star pig, a woman whose house is a swine shrine and a pigsty fit for a god.
Also, a day in the life of Herefordshire vet, Francis Anthony.

Which bird is brave enough to pick the teeth of the crocodile? How does a two-headed skink know which way to run? And will the giant tortoise win its battle with Desmond?

Tibet: the Lost Nation
This year in Tibet, new riots against Chinese rule led to many deaths and the imposition of martial law.
Tourists were expelled, but brought back eyewitness accounts and dramatic new pictures. Tibetan refugees in India also tell their tragic stories of life in Tibet, 30 years after the great Tibetan uprising against the Chinese. Exiled in India, the former God-king ruler of Tibet, the Dalai Lama, and 100,000 followers have rebuilt their monasteries and kept alive their ancient religion. Their government-in-exile patiently awaits a recall to Tibet. But will it ever come?
Tibet, for all the power of its religion and nationalism, may already be the latest in a long line of small nations swallowed up by powerful neighbours.

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.
