: Newseries Ski Sunday

Dramatic winter sports action featuring the world's top ski racers in high-speed competition in the World Cup:
The Men's Downhill from Val Gardena
Harti Weirather , from the Austrian Tyrol, has been winning races since he was six. He's known as one of the quieter men of the circuit, although he's reputed to be a mad car driver! He won last year's Men's Downhill in an exciting finish just five points ahead of Podborski.
High in the Italian Dolomites, the ' Saslonch ' course with its famous Camels Humps is one of the most spectacular in the World Cup calendar.
Last year, two races here produced victories for Switzerland's Peter Mueller , third in the downhill championship, and Austrian Harti Weirather , the eventual champion, but this season the twin Canadian challenge of Steve Podborski and Ken Read could take the 1982 title across the Atlantic.

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.
