11.00 Cricket: Third Test
Third-day action between England and New Zealand in the final Cornhill
Insurance Test from Old Trafford. The last England Test series victory was against the New Zealanders on the England 1992 winter tour, but the last time they won at Old Trafford was against Australia in 1981. So far New Zealand have never beaten England at
Old Trafford.

1.30 Wimbledon
The Women's Singles final a year ago lived up to the drama of the occasion.
Steffi Graf seemed beaten when underdog Jana Novotna took a 4-1 lead in the deciding set, but Graf found another gear and Novotna crumbled. Graf returned to Wimbledon this year as top seed - and favourite to take a record first prize of E3 0,000. But she was knocked out of the competition in the first round by unseeded Texan Lori McNeil , who beat the defending champion in straight sets.
The Wimbledon fortnight marks a sentimental farewell to Martina
Navratilova, chasing a dream tenth singles title in what she has decreed to be her last year at the top level.
John Barrett and Virginia Wade describe the live Centre Court action.

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.
