Euro 2008 Match of the Day Live: Germany v Poland


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
Emotions are sure to run high in the Worthersee Stadium in Klagenfurt, Austria, as the favourites get their campaign under way in this Group B clash against their hopeful neighbours (kick-off 7.45).
A surprise third-place finish on home turf at the 2006 World Cup restored German pride, but despite winning the European title in 1996, they have not won a match in the tournament since.
Coach Joachim Low will look to the experience of Chelsea's Michael Ballack, Arsenal's Jens Lehmann and Miroslav Klose of Bayern Munich to rectify that.
Competing in their first European championship after topping a group including Euro 2004 finalists Portugal, Poland will hope that Euzebiusz Smolarek can continue the form that saw him hit the net nine times in qualification. Smolarek was the first Pole in 20 years to score a goal against Portugal, the last one having been scored by his father, Wlodzimierz Smolarek.
Introduced by Gary Lineker.

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.
