Sue Barker hosts live coverage of the Wimbledon ladies' final on Centre Court (starts 2.00).
Last year, Maria Sharapova became the youngest female to lift the coveted Venus Rosewater Dish since Martina Hingis in - and if the 17-year-old Russian was nervous making her Grand Slam final debut against top seed Serena Williams , it didn't show. Sharapova quickly took the first set and, despite a break of serve in the second, broke back with stunning play that had even her opponent applauding. How has the number two seed performed this time around? Wimbledon play continues on BBC2, 4.15pm. TV presentation Paul Davies

: Live 8

The waiting's finally over, and 20 years on from Live Aid's original "global juxebox", the eyes of the world are focused once again on an epic, international musical extravaganza - this time to generate support for the Make Poverty History campaign.

The stellar and highly eclectic cast list at the day's stand-out event in London's Hyde Park reads like a Who's Who of pop royalty. There are sets from standard-bearers of the old guard like Paul McCartney, Elton John, Sting, event instigator Bob Geldof, Annie Lennox and, specially re-formed for the show, the classic Pink Floyd line-up; established acts include U2, Coldplay, Dido, Snoop Dogg, Madonna, Robbie Williams, Mariah Carey, REM, UB40, Travis, Snoop Dogg, Velvet Revolver and Stereophonics; while Joss Stone, Keane, the Killers, Ms Dynamite , Razorlight, Scissor Sisters and Snow Patrol represent the younger generation.

Jonathan Ross will take viewers to the heart of the action from a pod positioned above the stage, while Jo Whiley and Fearne Cotton will be catching up with musicians backstage. Plus special guests and updates from today's concerts in Paris, Berlin, Johannesburg, Toronto, Tokyo and Rome. The show is repeated along with the US event at 7pm on BBC3.

Radio 1 broadcasts live throughout the day from the gigs across Europe; Radio 2 has interviews with performers in London; and Radio 5 Live's coverage includes the Make Poverty History march in Edinburgh.

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.
