Stadium in Helsinki. At
5.10 400-metres hurdler Sally Gunnell tries to win the one major gold medal that has so far eluded her. In the championships at Split four years ago the comparatively inexperienced Gunnell could only finish sixth, but she came of age two years later when she took the Olympic title in Barcelona. This was followed last year by a winning world-record performance in the Stuttgart world championships, and Gunnell is hot favourite to add the European to her medal collection.
In the men's 110-metres hurdle at 6.30 Colin Jackson defends his European title. Like Gunnell he broke the world record in winning gold at
Stuttgart. Amongthose up against him in the final, unless the heats went totally against form, is his close friend Tony Jarrett , who took silver behind Jackson at both Split and Stuttgart, as well as Olympic champion Mark McKoy , who competed for his native Canada at Barcelona but now runs for

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.
