from Stuttgart Introduced by Desmond Lynam
If you thought yesterday was rivetting don't get up in the next four hours unless it all gets too much for you. Pole Vault Final
There's more to this than
SERGEY BUBKA - not much - say QUINON, VIGNERON and COLLET who portent Ie Drapeau Tricolore. Heptathlon
Best in Europe this year is an East German, there's a shock, ANKE BEHMER. Who'll forget Mrs SIMPSON in Edinburgh? Women's Javelin Final
PETRA FELKE might have to step in to separate TESSA and FATIMA - hope not.
Men's Long Jump Final
BOB EMMIYAN to take over Igor Ter-Ovanesyan 's considerable space. Men 200m Final
The world record is still held by a European,
Pietro Mennea - an amazing 19.72 in
19.79. In 19.86 they go at 18.30 Women's 200m Final
SZEWINKSA did it in 66, DRECHSLER should in 86 - the long jump/200m double.
Women's 100in Hurdles Final Ten barriers at 2ft 6ins
3,000m Steeplechase Final Thirty-five barriers at 3ft - one constantly wet. Men's 400m Final
Britain won this last in 1971. ROGER BLACK to do a JENKINS? Men's 10,000m
The final may be today if it wasn't on Tuesday. COVA to win any day of the week. 1,500m heats for milers of both sexes - and it'll be a lot tougher than Edinburgh. Semi-finals of the Men's high hurdles and the Women's lows.

: Gardeners' World

from Mosborough, near Sheffield
Presented by Geoff Hamilton and Clay Jones
Margery Butterworth 's garden is just five years old and already a prize-winner.
Failing health due to chronic illness forced her into early retirement and, against her husband's advice, she set about converting a quarter-acre of weeds, heavy clay and stones into a mature and beautiful garden at very little cost.
Anyone who feels that gardening is expensive and too much like hard work should join Clay Jones and Geoff Hamilton tonight and see what can be achieved for under £200 by someone who was never quite sure whether she would see the fulfilment of her ambitions. Production assistant CHRISTINE HARDMAN

: The Healing Arts

The last in a series of documentaries that look at many unusual aspects of medicine.
The Inner Journey
Doctors of all sorts have long accepted that if patients believe they will get well, they quite often do.
Techniques involving the mind and, as some think, the spirit in healing the body are explored in the Cardiac Unit of Charing Cross Hospital,
London, a relaxation clinic in Boston, USA, and on a pilgrimage to Lourdes.

: The Rockford Files

starring one of television's most popular private eyes.
The Battle of Canoga Park Rockford finds himself a prime suspect when his gun is found at the scene of the killing of a petrol station owner. His alibi - that the weapon was stolen from his cookie jar - adds little to his defence, and his attempts to clear his name offer few crumbs of comfort.

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.
