Sue Barker presents live coverage of the sixth day's play at Wimbledon with the third round due to be finished by close of play tonight. At this stage last year, defending champion Roger Federer had not even dropped a set, let alone come close to losing. The last time a player went through the whole men's singles tournament without dropping a set was in 1976, when Bjorn Borg claimed the first of his five consecutive titles.

: Casualty: The Long Goodbye

Selena discovers that her nightmare with the drugs gang is far from over.

[web address removed]

Medical Drama: Casualty 8.25pm BBC1
One of Casualty's favourite tricks is to weave together two or three minor storylines, revealing the connection at the end. Usually it's done with sledgehammer subtlety, but tonight they're linked in such an obscure way, it's impossible to imagine anyone will guess the link.
For much of the episode it's business as usual: various patients are treated and dispatched; Maggie struggles to balance work commitments with her father's deteriorating mental state; Bex is horrified to hear from Claire that she's not the first woman to be raped by Pete; and Selena continues her quest for sainthood. But this, too, takes a dramatic turn, ending up with a member of staff fighting for their life. (Jane Rackham)

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.

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