8.10 Women's 10km walk
8.45 Women's 400m hurdles, semi-finals
9.15Men's 10,000m final
Some of the greatest names in long-distance running have won the Olympic 10,000m.
Finland's Paavo Nurmi won in 1920 and was rewarded for his pains by being vomited on by the silver medallist. He went on to win another eight golds at a whole range of distances. The legendary Czech Emil Zatopek won back-to-back golds in 1948 and 1952, as did another
Finnish hero, Lasse Viren , in 1972 and 1976 - setting a world record with his first win.
1976 was also the year that
Olmeus Charles of Haiti set the slowest time ever recorded in an Olympic 1 0,000m race. The entire race schedule had to be held up as he finished the last six laps of his heat alone, a full 14 minutes behind the winner.
Britain is represented this year by the considerably quicker Eamonn Martin and Richard Nerurkar. The women's 10km walk is making its Olympic debut in Barcelona, with the world champion Alina Ivanona
(Unified Team) favourite to win the event's first gold medal. And later on, Britain's Sally Gunnell runs for a place in tomorrow's final of the women's 400m hurdles.
Plus news of the canoeing, yachting, boxing and badminton competitions, and a roundup of the day's other events.

Supporters of the death penalty in America used to claim it was a deterrent to violent crime.
Now, more and more, they support it simply as a form of revenge. John Ware reports on how, in pursuit of retribution, America is putting to death juveniles, the mentally retarded, the insane, and even the innocent.

: Chato's Land

Charles Bronson
Jack Palance
1873: Arillo, Texas. Taunted by the town sheriff, Pardon
Chato - an Apache half-breed - shoots the man in self-defence and rides out of town. A vicious posse decides to follow him, seeking revenge and a revival oftheoldhatredfelt towards the Indians. Gradually, Chato draws them into his own territory, and the manhunt takes a horrifying turn as the 13 men find that they are no match for Chato's cunning and strength.
In this taut western, Bronson gives one of his finest performances as the man driven to murder by racial hatred.

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.
