Meanings of Madness (2)

: XIV European Athletics Championships

from Stuttgart Introduced by Desmond Lynam
'I got the big G boys, I got the big G.' DALEY THOMPSON , LA, circa 1984. The whistling Olympic champion hopes to remain World, European,
Olympic and Commonwealth champion until at least 1987. STEVE CRAM goes for two titles at 800 metres, MARITA KOCH for three at four.
Women's Discus Final
One of the few things woman has done longer than man. The world record by Miss SILHAVA, a Czechoslovakian plate arranger, is 74.56m; man's best is 74.08m by Jurgen Schultz.
The men's discus is, however, twice as heavy as the girls', who are certainly not half as strong. Women's High Jump Final KOSTADINOVA back on for Bulgaria.
Women's 400m Final
KOCH - say no more. Well a little, probably the best woman athlete of all time, that's all. Off she goes at 5.40.
Men's Shot Final
It's all in the Christian name
Men's 800m Final
CRAM at the double. It's said that COE has never won a significant 800m apart from the one he did in 1:41.73! News at 6.0. Women's 800m Final
DOINA MELINTE in the red corner v
JARMILA KRATOCHVILOVA, also in the red corner. Women's 3,000m Final
They won't do it again if they did it on Tuesday. If they didn't, this is it, BUDD. Men's 400m Hurdles Final Vocal for the local -
Heats, too, of the Women's low hurdles, semis in the highs, the Men's four, long sprints for both and 5,000 heats for Men.

World War's greatest untold spy sagas: the case of Norwegian double agents John Moe and Tor Glad, code-names 'Mutt' and 'Jeff. John Moe returns to the north-east coast of Scotland to recount his remarkable story.

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.
