: The Contenders

"Diet is intrinsic to sport, "says Olympic gold medal cyclist
Chris Boardman who uses "boring" high-tech carbohydrate polymer drinks to keep his energy up for long-distance events. Meanwhile Sally Gunnell , another Olympic gold medallist, believes that wholly natural foods boosted her performance "overnight".
The Future's in the Fridge, the second programme in this five-part documentary series, looks at how top athletes are changingtheir diet in the search for a better performance.
However, not all athletes have the same attitude. Colin
Jackson is a dietician's nightmare during the non-training months of winter: "If there was a table, half covered with doughnuts, sweets, cream cakes and pizza and the other half with fish, grapes, some bananas, juice and the like, Linford [Christie] would not touch the sweet side and I would not touch the other side," he says.

Jones in the original, and he now plans another run from Texas to Montana with a herd of mustangs.

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.
