Introduced by Desmond Lynam
Motor Racing
Belgian Grand Prix
The song and dance about pole position is well illustrated by the fact that JIM CLARK won at Spa four times in 1962, 63, 64 and 65 and was on pole once, in 1967 - when DAN GURNEY won!
MURRAY and JAMES at
Francorchamps from 2.0.

At 4.0 BST, a rocket goes up in New York, and in 100 cities around the world athletes, and those who just want to help, set off running for the lives of the starving masses in Africa, an unprecedented Band Aid/UNICEF/United
Nations venture - like you'd expect with BOB GELDOF.

: The World About Us

Outback Bash
'She'll be right mate -just watch out for the 'roos, and take enough water.'
Take 40 old bangers and buses (one of them with John Newcombe at the wheel), line them all up outside the Sydney Opera House, wave the whole circus off to an obscure destination on the other side of the continent.... and you've got a 2,500 mile Outback Bash.
You can gain points by cheating. You can lose them by taking things too seriously. You can even bribe the officials - if you can find one. After all, it's all in a good cause - organised by round-the-world-flyer Dick Smith. After six days, there's a winner - the oldest car in the race. There's a runner-up and everyone else comes equal third. It's all very Australian. Too right!

The 1986 Formula One World Championship
The Belgian Grand Prix
Just when you thought it was safe to go back on the Grand Prix track, McLaren score another win double.
Their 1-2 at Monaco followed ALAIN prost's San Marino victory, and the diminutive Frenchman now leads the Drivers' Championship from arch rival AYRTON SENNA. The Spa-Francorchamps circuit in Belgium proved to be to the Brazilian's liking last year, when he beat our own NIGEL MANSELL to the chequered flag. Commentators

: First Run: Lily in Love

continues a season of films new to television.
Tonight starring
Christopher Plummer Maggie Smith
Lily Wynn , a successful writer of stage and cinema, has just completed a brilliant new screenplay. Her husband - usually her leading man - is delighted at the chance to play the key role. He is less delighted to be told that she wants someone younger, more romantic and - preferably - Italian. Fitz decides that drastic action is called for ...
This frothy comedy is set in New York and Budapest and uses locations there to tell its story of romance, intrigue and the crazy world of 'show business'. Fitzroy Wynn /

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.
