1.40 Wimbledon 97: Ladles Singles Final
Live coverage from Centre Court, where the ladies' singles final starts at 2pm. With reigning champion Steffi Graf missing from the tournament, this year's Wimbledon trophy will almost certainly be etched with the name of a first-time winner. If her world ranking is anything to go by, it is highly likely that top seed
Martina Hingis will have reached today's final. Other contenders for the title include Seles, Novotna and Sanchez-Vicario. But, like the weather, Wimbledon is unpredictable and always capable of serving up some surprises.
With commentary from John Barrett and Virginia Wade. Wimbledon coverage continues on BBC2 with the men's doubles final and the mixed doubles final.
Live coverage of the men's singles final starts tomorrow at 1.30pm.

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.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
