: Wimbledon and Cricket: Second Test

There is little room for sentiment in the modern, multi-million-dollar world of the professional tennis circuit, and yet the modern players still pay tribute to the unique, time-hallowed magic of Wimbledon, where the two week championship starts today. "It is what it is," says Jim Courier simply, and he rates even Wimbledon's number 1 court as offering a greater sense of occasion than the centre court of his home Grand Slam tournament, the US Open.
The French Open in Paris, two weeks ago, was the preceding major tournament but rarely provides hugely significant pointers to the Wimbledon fortnight, so different are the playing qualities of clay and grass. Nevertheless, French victors Sergi Bruguera and Arantxa Sanchez Vicario arrive in south-west London brimming with form.
Commentary on the action is by John Barrett , Mark Cox , Bill Threlfall , David Mercer , Julian Tutt , Paul Hutchins and John Alexander.
Introduced by Desmond Lynam.
After 4.30, coverage is shared with the final day's play in the second Test between England and New Zealand, from Lord's.

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.
