: Horizon

A Sporting Chance
What do you need to become an Olympic athlete? Are there people in Britain capable of competing in athletic events at world-class level who do not realise it? Why do sprinters never become marathon runners and vice-versa? How did East Germany in the last Olympic Games win more gold medals than the USA, a country ten times its size?
Improved selection, training and technique will help but there are much more dramatic ways.
Computers can analyse body movements down to the last detail. Blood doping can improve performance by up to ten per cent, the difference between coming 20th and winning. But perhaps the most serious issue in sport is the use of drugs. Is there a solution to this growing problem?
Science in sport is a powerful tool, but how far should it be used? Narrator PAUL VAUGHAN

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.
