: The Big Time: Lol Cottrell plays for Liverpool

Reporter John Pitman
The award-winning series which allows talented amateurs the chance of their dreams - to take part in a spectacular professional event.
This week, we follow the adventures of Lol Cottrell, a 28-year-old baker's roundsman, who has always dreamed of playing football for Liverpool.
This year he did - in Tommy Smith's testimonial game. Coached by Tommy - the 'Iron Man of Anfield' - Lol spends two weeks training for his big match and collecting advice from the Liverpool team and top professionals like Denis Law, Bill Shankly and Jimmy Hill. But how will the amateur player cope in front of a crowd of 56,000 at Anfield?

The arts in action
For Love or Money
'Over the last 20 years art has been a better investment than real estate or stocks' said Armand Hammer, oil tycoon and collector, announcing the recent merger of a well known art investment company, Modareo, with one of New York's top galleries, Knoedler.
Because of the high price of art it is often hidden away in bank vaults, it is stolen, it is forged and it is bought and sold in secret.
For Love or Money takes a look at what goes on in the international art trade - at the sale-rooms where it comes up for auction, at the dealers who buy and sell, and at the museums where it usually ends up. We tell the story of an Italian masterpiece, sold for a million pounds which has completely disappeared, the story of a so-called 'ring' at a country auction sale and other incidents which help to reveal what goes on behind the scenes.
(Next week: part 2 of 'For Love or Money' looks behind the scenes of the art world and talks to dealers, artists and collectors)

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.
