: World Athletics

Sue Barker presents live coverage of the penultimate night of competition in Helsinki, featuring four finals, the highlight of which is the men's 4x100m.
5.45 Men's long jump final. There could be British interest here if Olympic finalist Chris Tomlinson manages to overcome an injury-plagued summer.
6.10 Women's 5,000m final. Britain's Jo Pavey should be lining up tonight, but she'll face a daunting African-dominated field likely to be led by Ethiopia's world and Olympic champions Meseret Defar and Tirunesh Dibaba.
6.40 Women's 4x100m final. Olympic champions
Jamaica will be strong favourites, with title-holders France and a new-look USA team their main opposition.
7.05 Women's 4x400m round 1
7.40 Men's 4x100m final. Great Britain's men caused one of the greatest upsets in athletics history when they beat the powerful American quartet to Olympic gold last summer. Most, if not all, of that British team should be in action tonight, chasing the nation's first ever world sprint relay gold. Can they once again dig out a team performance to exceed that of the USA's squad of undoubtedly faster individuals?

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.
