: Wimbledon

Live coverage of the men's semi-finals where, this time last year, Pete Sampras and Jim Courier knocked out former championship title-holders Boris Becker and Stefan Edberg respectively, to reach their first Wimbledon final. If this year's seedings are accurate - and that's certainly not always the case - then reigning champion Sampras will meet Croatian Goran Ivanisevic in one semi-final, and former champions Michael Stich of Germany and the consistant Swede, Edberg, will meet in the other. Sampras, Stich and Edberg are currently the top rated players in the world. Ivanisevic, runner-up in 1992, is ranked fifth.
Commentators for the week are John Barrett, Mark Cox, Paul Hutchins, Ann Jones, David Mercer, Bill Threlfall, Julian Tutt and Virginia Wade.
Introduced by Desmond Lynam.

Service - the busiest station in the north east. In tonight's programme, paramedic Paul Chapman and ambulance technician Jason Orchard
, on duty in Newcastle city centre, come to the aid of a concussed schoolgirl, several drunksand a man havingan epileptic seizure. They must also cope with the greatest sadness for any paramedic team - the death of a child.

: Men Behaving Badly

When producer Beryl Vertue read an obscure paperback, Men Behaving Badly, she instantly recognised its television potential and determined to track down its author. She found Simon Nye working as a translator in a bank and together they developed the series which went on to win the 1992 British Comedy Award for best ITV sitcom. This third series sees the programme switch channels.
In tonight's first episode, Gary becomes alarmed that he is sexually inexperienced and invents a rampant past. But proving to Dorothy he has had over 50 lovers could be difficult.
Meanwhile, in an effort to impress Deborah with his athletic prowess, Tony finds himself on the top board at the local swimming-pool - and immediately regrets it.
Nye has since written Frank Stubbs Promotes and a forthcoming series on the legal profession for ITV, Is It Legal?

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.
