: Commonwealth Games Grandstand

One of many memorable moments for British athletes in the recent European
Championships was Steve Backley's gold medal performance in the javelin.
Tonight, in Victoria, Backley will don an English vest and hope that he can add to his list of successes on the last day of the Commonwealth Games.
The javelin starts at 9.05 - as does the women's 1500-metres final. That was another event to cherish in Helsinki, where Kelly Holmes's grittily determined sprint down the final straight earned her a silver medal. Can she make it gold this time?
Other finals to be held are the men's 1500 metres (9.25), the men's triple jump (9.35), the men's shot put (9.40) and the women's sprint relay (9.55).
And at 10.15 some less happy memories from Helsinki with the men's 4x 100 metres relay - the sprinters hopefully mindful of the baton-dropping incident in the European Championships.
Introduced by Desmond Lynam, with Daley Thompson and David Moorcroft.

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.
