PICK OF THE DAY SPORT RELIEF Messrs Lineker, Ross, Carr, Shearer, Chiles, Lemar and Shephard are all being sports for charity
ENTERTAINMENT Sport Relief 7.00pm, 10.45pm BBC1; 10.00pm BBC2
Fish-out-of-water celebs, heart-rending video packages, awkward live exchanges involving dodgy innuendo long before the watershed - charity nights have a special magic. And frankly, it would be hard to look at the line-up of tonight's array of unlikely fun and not be tempted by something.
Which bit will make you finally crack and reach for the credit card? For some it'll be David Walliams and James Cracknell's gutsy attempt to complete a triathlon from England to Africa; for others it will be the Top Gear gang doing a garden makeover, Ground Force-style (10pm BBC2); then again, Jonathan Ross and Michael Parkinson joining forces for a chat show could be a precious TV moment.
And don't forget the concluding part of the celebrity Apprentice, in which we confidently predict a clash of monster egos between Kelvin MacKenzie and Sir Alan Sugar. Back in the studio, Richard Hammond, Gary Lineker and Davina McCall are among the hosts urging us to give. (David Butcher)

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.

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