: Winter Olympics - Opening Ceremony

The curtain-raiser for two weeks of snow, slopes, skis and skates as the 20th event gets under way.
Live coverage of this dazzling spectacle from the Stadio Olympico , Turin, heralds the start of 17 days of sporting action as 2,500 athletes converge on the region to compete for the ultimate prize in sport, an Olympic gold medal. From downhill skiing to curling, from ice hockey to figure skating, 84 gold medals will be contested.
Although Great Britain is not in line for a major medal haul who could have foreseen events four years ago at Salt Lake City? More than five million people in Britain were glued to the TV past midnight and discussing the finer points of curling as Rhona Martin and her team finally swept up the gold medal. Can they do it again?
An underdog story to watch is that of Ghanaian skier Kwame Nkrumah-Acheampong who is hoping to become the first of his countrymen to compete at the Winter Olympics, despite having only being skiing for the last three years.
Presented by Sue Barker , commentators are
Barry Davies and Hazel Irvine while Clare Balding , Steve Cram and Colin Jackson look forward to some of those events, stories and personalities that are expected to dominate the next 17 days.

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.

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.
