Introduced by Desmond Lynam
Motor Racing from Zeltweg
The Austrian Grand Prix
Home fixture for LAUDA-close, but still away, for PROST. Team orders from McLaren say nothing about road manners-he who leads, wins. Commentator MURRAY WALKER.
Swimming from Blackpool
The Optrex ASA Championships
Second day of the nationals. ALAN WEEKS and HAMILTON BLAND, fresh from their successes in Los Angeles, get back to their roots. They'll do anything for a commentary.
Golf from Fulford Club, York
Master golfer BILLY CASPER could well be in the frame when the leaders come into view. He's seen it all before but of course another 920,000 could always come in handy.

The first of four films as a tribute to one of the screen's most memorable actors with Claire Bloom, Oscar Werner The finest-and most successful-adaptation of a John Ie Carre novel to the big screen.

The seedy world of spying and counter-espionage is portrayed by a fine British cast, including Rupert Davies as the first personification of the now famous 'Smiley'.

: Grand Prix

The 1984 Formula One World Championship
Austrian Grand Prix
Who would bet against an Austrian winning in Austria? The records show that it's never happened, but NIKI LAUDA, just 41 points behind ALAIN
PROST in the Drivers' Championship, could be the first.
There can be little doubt that the championship is a two-horse race, even if both riders are on the same horse. The McLaren domination continued in Germany a fortnight ago with another one-two. But McLaren have never won here and, should they fail again, watch out for Britain's DEREK WARWICK in the Renault and the Lotus pair of NIGEL MANSELL and ELIO DE ANGELIS. Commentators

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
