A roundup of the day's key action which has seen further alpine medals awarded in the women's combined event, freestyle aerial ski-ing, speed-skating and cross-country.

: The Olympic Ice-Dance Championship

Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean "face the music and dance" as the competition reaches its climax, with live coverage of the free dance programme.
This routine has brought them the British and European titles en route to the Olympics, but competition is intense. After all, it was the skills of the competing Russian couples - Maia Usova and Alexander Zhulin , Oksana Gritschuk and Evgeni Platov - that, thanks to the complicated marking system, effectively cancelled each other out at the European event and let Torvill and Dean through to take gold.
Britain has only ever won six gold medals at Winter Olympic events. Alan Weeks and Barry Davies are the commentators as Torvill and Dean try to make it seven.
As coverage of the Ice-dance championship Is live, subsequent programmes may run late.

: Middlemarch

Andrew Davies's adaptation of George Eliot's classic novel has received almost universal critical acclaim - and over seven million people have been watching each episode.
Tonight there's a second chance to see the conclusion, first screened last Wednesday on BBC2.

February 1832: the Lydgates' marriage grows increasingly bitter as the prospect of bankruptcy and losing their home becomes a stark possibility. But the return of Raffles, now a desperately sick man, sets off a train of events which shake Middlemarch society to its foundations and dramatically change the lives of everyone in the town.
With Judi Dench as the voice of George Eliot.

BBC Classic Collection: Middlemarch is available in a four-cassette audio-tape version, read by Ronald Pickup, price £9.99 from record and bookshops.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
