: Olympic Grandstand

Live coverage from Barcelona of the opening ceremony of the XXVth Olympic Games.
Four years ago in Seoul, the pulsating beats of Korean drums, mass taekwondo and haunting oriental tunes greeted the thousands of athletes marching into the stadium and entertained millions of viewers worldwide. Today, it's the turn of Catalonia's city of culture to provide the breathtaking colour and spectacle which a modern-day Olympic opening demands. This year's parade of competing nations will include the long-banned Republic of South Africa, a unified German team and, for the first time since 1936, the republics of Lithuania, Estonia and Latvia. The traditional lighting of the Olympic flame marks the start of 16 days of spectacular sport. Presented by Desmond Lynam , with David Coleman.
NB As the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games is live, subsequent programming may run late.

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.
