: It's Marty Resurrected: Some of the Best of Marty Feldman

Jonathan Ross presents this special tribute to the comic genius described by Ross as "the forgotten man of British TV comedy". First seen in the closing days of the post-war variety circuit, Feldman's performing talents were rediscovered for the satirical television series At Last the 1948 Show. This led to Feldman being given his own series and later he made a career in Hollywood. Although the impact of his work has faded over the years,
Feldman has retained a core of fans, like Jonathan Ross , who still admire his surreal and physical comedy. See today's choices. Producer David Housham

Highlights of today's play in the ladies' quarter-finals. Last year, for the first time since the introduction of seeding in 1927, neither the first nor second seed - Steffi Graf and Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario - reached the quarter-final stage. Graf lost out to American Lori McNeil, who was herself knocked out in the semi-finals.
Sanchez-Vicario had hopes of becoming the first Spanish woman ever to win the Wimbledon singles title, but instead had to watch her compatriot Conchita Martinez take the honour. Presented by Sue Barker.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
