Introduced by Sue Barker.

The decathlon continues with action from the 110m hurdles and discus, featuring Britain's Alex Kruger. In the 1992 Olympic Games at Barcelona, Robert Zmelik of Czechoslovakia went into the lead on the second day of this two-day event, and eventually won by a 200-point lead over the home crowd's favourite, Antonio Penalver of Spain.

The women will be completing their qualifying rounds of the high jump and long jump, with British heptathlete Denise Lewis among the hopeful contenders.
Badminton medals will also be won in the men's and women's singles finals. Victory was especially sweet at the Barcelona Olympics for Indonesian Allan Budi Kusuma who won the men's singles title just hours after his girlfriend Susi Susanti took the women's title.

There is also semi-final canoeing action as those who have successfully completed the qualifying rounds compete for one of nine places in the final.

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.
