: Sports Review of the Year

From the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre in London,
Desmond Lynam and Steve Rider celebrate 1992's great sporting moments, and announce the BBC Sports Personality of the Year.
It was the year of the 25th
Olympiad, and in the summer heat of Barcelona Linford Christie became the oldest man to win the 100m gold and in the 400m hurdles Sally Gunnell captured Britain's first female athletics gold medal for 20 years. In the rowing,
Steven Redgrave and Matthew Pinsent powered to victory in the coxless pairs and, with their emotional cox Garry Herbert , brothers Jonny and Greg Searle took the coxed pairs gold. And an unexpected cycling gold was won by Chris Boardman on his revolutionary "superbike".
Elsewhere, Nigel Mansell finally won the World Drivers' Championship, with a record-breaking nine Grand Prix wins, and the ever-consistent golfer Nick Faldo took his second
Open title. England's cricket team lost the World Cup final to Pakistan but gained one-day revenge in the summer;
Will Carling 's England rugby union side secured their second successive Grand Slam; boxers Lennox Lewis and Frank Bruno both boosted their world heavyweight title prospects; evergreen jockey
Lester Piggott , now 57, took a tumble in America but vowed to return to the saddle, and at Wimbledon, Andre Agassi upstaged them all.
There will also be awards for
Team of the Year and Overseas
Personality of the Year. Producer Martin Hopkins Editor Brian Barwick

: Everyman

Explorations of the faith and beliefs of people in ordinary and extraordinary circumstances. A Job for Life. An intimate portrait of some of the 900 miners and their families of the South Yorkshire village of Grimethorpe. On 13 October this year - "Black Tuesday" - it was announced that the colliery would have 90 days in which its fate would be decided. Three weeks later coal production stopped. Shot above and below ground during the run-up to probable closure, this film shows that, for many, loss of work will mean a loss of self-esteem in a community that's losing its reason for existence.

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.
