Presented by Bill Turnbull and Louise Minchin.


Presented By: Bill Turnbull
Presented By: Louise Minchin.

: London Marathon

Live coverage of the 24th running of the annual road race through the capital, which follows 32,000 competitors on the 26.2-mile course from
Greenwich to the Mall. Starts are at 8.55 (women), 9.15 (men) for the wheelchair races, 9.05 for the women's race and 9.45 for the men's and mass races.
In the men's event, Olympic gold medallist
Gezahegne Abera defends the title he won last year with a dramatic sprint finish. The two men who crossed the line immediately behind him then - Italy's Stefano Baldini and Kenya's Joseph Ngolepus - are likely to feature strongly again, as are world champion Jaouad Gharib , two-time London winner Abdelkader El Mouaziz and top British hope Jon Brown.
In the women's race, the absence of reigning champion and world-record holder Paula Radcliffe is compensated for by the likes of Sun Yingjie, the third-fastest female in marathon history, former 10,000m and cross-country champion Gete Wami , New York champion
Margaret Okayo , and Chicago winner Svetlana Zakharova.
Commentary by Steve Cram ,
Brendan Foster , Paul Dickenson and Ian Thompson , with reports from Sally Gunnell ,
Angellica Bell , Rishi Persaud , Phil Jones , Juliette Ferrington , Richard Nerurkar and Peter Elliott. Presented by Sue Barker.
Highlights at 6.40pm on BBC2. Executive producer Martin Webster
Executive editor Dave Gordon BBCi: digital viewers can access the elite races, the finish and a replay of all the mini-marathon finishers

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.
