: Golf: the Open -Grandstand

Who is moving into contention in continuing live coverage of the third day's play at St Andrews ?
The world's oldest and most
Prestigious golf tournament attracted a record 2,499 entries this year, with this being its 28th staging at the famous Old Course. On the last occasion, in 2000, the winner was Tiger Woods.
The American started favourite this year, but the tough course's exposed position on Scotland's east coast makes it a testing examination for even the elite.
At the same stage last year, little-known Todd Hamilton of the US belied his world ranking of 56 to open up a narrow one-shot lead with a second straight round of 67. Breathing down his neck at Royal Troon were the intimidating trio of Ernie Els , Phil Mickelson and Retief Goosen.
Presented by Steve Rider. See tomorrow's choice. INTERACTIVE: digital viewers can select dedicated coverage of a leading group, see regularly updated highlights and view a live leaderboard of scores from every player on the course

: Are You Younger than You Think?

More advice from Professor Ian Philp on lifestyle improvements, plus host Desmond Lynam revealing the truth about his "real age".

Are You Younger than You Think? 9.10pm, 11.10pm BBC1
You're trying to eat your five portions of fruit and veg a day. You've given up smoking. You even walk up the stairs occasionally. But does your recent attempt at a healthy lifestyle mean you'll live longer? Or have years of over-indulgence and inactivity aged you prematurely and permanently?
This live interactive show claims to tell you how fast your body is ageing, regardless of the numbers on your birth certificate. There's also advice on keeping young, plus tips for increasing your longevity, which include flossing your teeth (see below in The Inside Story for the reason why).
Desmond Lynam is in the studio to test the health of the audience and various celebrities. Those of us at home with the strength to lift a pen, press the red button on our remotes or pick up our WAP-enabled phones can take part too. JR

We all know that eating healthily and exercising can make us live longer - but did you know that believing in God and flossing your teeth can help? "There's actually a science to this," says Professor Ian Philp (right), one of the experts appearing in Are You Youngerthan You Think? (9.10pm, 11.10pm BBC1). "If you floss your teeth, you have fewer bacteria in your mouth, bacteria that can trigger a chain of events that bring forward heart disease."
And religion? "I worked with a colleague who was studying the impact of religion on health, and it was true that people who were religious lived longer and were healthier. If you're religious, you probably believe that God has a part to play in it; if you're not, you could think of it as a psychological support system," says Professor Philp. "It's maybe quite nice to have a friend in Jesus!"

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.
