: London Marathon Highlights

Who made the headlines at today's 25th London Marathon? World records were under threat in the elite races, as Paula Radcliffe aimed for her third win, while a field of unprecedented quality contested the men's honours. And with 32,000 people tackling the 26-mile course - including such well-known faces as Jo Brand , Gordon Ramsay , James Cracknell and Steve Redgrave - there should be some revealing stories to tell. Sue Barker has all the highlights.

: World Snooker

Live coverage from the Crucible Theatre as two first-round matches reach their conclusion.
2000 runner-up Matthew Stevens will be favourite against Devon's Andy Hicks but it's far from a guaranteed win. Having made it to the final 16 in last year's tournament, Hicks did well in his attempts to contain Ronnie O'Sullivan , losing out just 13-11 to the eventual champion. Six-times world champion Steve Davis , meanwhile, is probably past his best but still managed to give O'Sullivan a run for his money in the final of last season's Welsh Open. His experience should be enough to see him through against qualifier Gerard Greene. With Ray Stubbs and Dennis Taylor. BBCi: digital viewers can access additional live coverage of both tables, plus news and statistics, via the handset's red button

: Heysel: Requiem for a Cup Final

129 May 1985: riots ahead of the European Cup final between Liverpool and Juventus cause a wall to collapse in Belgium s Heysel Stadium. Thirty-nine fans die and many more are injured. Incredibly, the match goes ahead and is broadcast around the world, as the authorities claim postponement could incite further trouble - yet many remain haunted by the decisions taken. Bruce Grobbelaar is among the players returning to Heysel to tell their stories for the 20th anniversary; this powerful and moving documentary also has contributions from victims and officials, and harrowing footage of the tragedy. Director Lode Desmet ; Executive producer Fiona Stourton

: Home from Home

An intriguing film following three generations of a British family as they embark on a life-changing adventure. The Andrews are leaving grimy London to rediscover their ancestral roots on the Caribbean island of Grenada, where they hope to set up an internet cafe and a nail salon. To kick-start their plans, they're staging a dancehall fundraiser on the island - in a storm-damaged venue that has no roof or electricity. Workmen are hired to sort out the mess, but their laid-back attitude to deadlines threatens to ruin the family's dreams of relocation. Producers Una Gopaul and David Lawson

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.
