: Match of the Day Live

West Ham United v Everton Introduced by Jimmy Hill
The new strike partnership of FRANK MCAVENNIE and TONY COTTEE formed last season helped West Ham into third position in the league, their highest finish. Between them the two young internationals scored 54 goals for the Hammers, and they are on target again this season, with Cottee well on schedule to reach the tally of 30 he has set himself.
Everton's treatment room has been filled by this season's most celebrated injury list. It is a measure of their squad strength that, though permanently below full compliment - and with last season's 40-goal Gary Lineker now exiled in Spain - they stayed unbeaten longer than any other First Division team at the start of 1986-87. BOBBY CHARLTON and TREVOR BROOKING have their say and the commentator is BARRY DAVIES.

: Everyman

The Retreat
Arthur: a sculptor from
Kirkby, Merseyside is trying to cope with religious doubts. Peter: Distribution Manager for a small firm near
Newcastle, needs to rethink his priorities at home and at work.
Elizabeth: hopes to find the spiritual resources to face her cancer.
All of them go on retreat.
For five days at St Beuno's College, North Wales, they follow St Ignatius's spiritual exercises, a blend of devotion and psychological exploration. The aim is 'to enable them to distinguish between their positive and creative feelings and their negative and destructive ones'.
Peter, Arthur and Elizabeth speak frankly and movingly about what it is like to be exposed to five days of silence and solitude in search of the will of God.

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.
