Lausanne Grand Prix
The Grand Prix circuit moves on to Switzerland for the prestigious Lausanne meeting, which traditionally attracts the top names in athletics. A year ago, Britain's Linford Christie was beaten in the 100m by Nigerian sprinter
Olapade Adeniken. Christie, who went on to gain revenge in the Olympic final in Barcelona, is expected to compete in a re-match tonight. Colin Jackson hopes to prove once again that he is the world's No 1 sprint hurdler, aiming to gain a psychological boost over his friend and training partner Mark McKoy , the Olympic champion, before next month's World Championships in Stuttgart. Sally Gunnell, the Olympic women's 400m hurdles gold medallist, is set to compete in that event tonight, while Yvonne Murray hopes to sharpen up for the World
Championships with a middle distance outing. Other star names hoping to be in action are Namibian sprinter
Frankie Fredericks , American 100m specialist Dennis Mitchell and Olympic long-jump champion Heike Drechsler - all of whom have Grand Prix victories to their credit this season.
Introduced by Helen Rollason with Brendan Foster.

: Goodbye Cruel World

A second showing for
Tony Marchant 's three-part drama, being screened on consecutive nights.
Starring Sue Johnston Alun Armstrong
Johnston's portrayal of a woman coming to terms with a devastating illness made the serial one of the most acclaimed programmes of 1992. She won the Radio Times Award for
Drama Performance of the Year, while the series was named Best Drama Serial of 1992 by the Royal Television Society and won a Prix Europa for television mini-series of the year. "I'd only recently left
Brookside, and I was working in theatre worrying about how I was going to re-establish myself on TV," says Johnston. "As soon as the script for
Goodbye Cruel World arrived I longed to get it. It's exactly the kind of part I like doing."

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.
