The Dundee-born runner has since had a baby, but she approached the World Championships in ideal fashion by winning the 3,000m at the Weltklesse Grand Prix in Zurich earlier this month. It is the semi-final stage in the men's 1500m, with Peter Elliott , Steve Cram , who is rapidly improving after injury, and Matthew Yates looking to progress to
Sunday's final. The men's long jump final features a man unbeaten in ten years and nearly 70 competitions, Carl Lewis.

: Omnibus at the Proms

Pictures at an Exhibition by Musorgsky began its life as a cycle of piano pieces, but has been orchestrated and arranged by more composers than any other musical work. At the last count there were more than 24 versions.
Tonight's programme features a complete performance of Pictures using arrangements by nine different people.
Pianist Joanna MacGregor asks why so many composers have been attracted to this music while Leonard Slatkin , who conducts, will explain how he came to put together this colourful mixture. Pictures at an Exhibition, performed by the Philharmonia, includes one movement by the Proms founder Sir Henry Wood and is linked by a series of interludes called 'Promenades' - a true Promenade Concert.
See panel below.

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.
