: Jonathan Ross Presents David Copperfield

America's most successful magician, David Copperfield has made a Lear Jet disappear, caused the Statue of Liberty to vanish, walked through the Great Wall of China and flown without the aid of wings or strings - and all apparently without camera tricks. He is huge in the United States, reportedly earning more than either Madonna or Michael Jackson.
In October he brings his spectacular and slick show - all dry ice, back lighting and rock music - to London, but by way of a taster this exclusive interview with Jonathan Ross includes not only the master sorcerer talking about his work but also footage of some of his most famous and impressive illusions.

9.15. Regis, who recently broke the British record, is another hoping for a second successive gold when the men's metres gets underway at 9.55. Regis is confident he'll be fit to run despite missing this event in the European
Championships through injury.
The women's 200-metres final, for which Katherine Merry was hopingto clinch a place, starts at 9.35 and the final of the men's high jump, where
England's Steve Smith and Dalton Grant are part of world-class field, begins at 9.45.

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.
