: Fighting Back

The series in which well-known people reveal how they coped with losing their health.
When Def Leppard's drummer Rick Allen lost his left arm in a horrific car crash it seemed that his musical career was finished.
But within weeks he was struggling to play again with the aid of his feet, and against all odds he is now ranked among the rock world's top drummers. He tells Lynn Redgrave how he has coped with the emotional trauma of losing a limb; his wife and members of the band add personal details to his extraordinary story. He avoids technological gadgetry and prefers to do everything unaided with just his feet and his one good arm.
Rick Allen 's attitude is wonderfully positive: "You see your body bent out of shape and you think: why should it happen to me? But I've been fortunate because now I like my physical appearance - I'm really streamlined!"
Producer Helen Thomas
Series editor Michael Latham

: Athletics

Live coverage interspersed with highlights of today's action at the Weltklasse meeting in Zurich. Olympic heroes and also-rans converge on Zurich for one of the biggest Grand
Prix meetings of the season. It is the first major athletics event since Barcelona and, with the serious business of chasing
Olympic medals out of the way, thoughts will turn to world record attempts. Sebastian Coe set two of his world records in Zurich - the 1500m in 1979 and the mile in 1981. In recent seasons, Americans Butch
Reynolds and Roger Kingdom have broken world records here in the 400m and 110m hurdles respectively. Last year Zambia's Samuel Matete set a Commonwealth record in the 400m hurdles and went on to be crowned World Champion. Commentary by David Coleman , Stuart Storey and Paul Dickenson.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
