Presented by Desmond Lynam. Featuring
World Cup Football Turkey v England
England will be looking for a repeat of their 4-0 success over Turkey at Wembley last
November. On that occasion
Paul Gascoigne marked an impressive performance with a brace of goals. Turkey's recent form in Group 2 includes a 3-1 defeat in Holland and a scoreless draw in San Marino.
Commentary by Barry Davies and Trevor Brooking.
Wales v Belgium
Wales need to capitalise on a strike force that can boast a Saunders, a Rush, a Hughes and now a Giggs! Beaten 2-0 in Belgium last November, the Welsh will be hoping to peg back Group 4's runaway leaders who boast six wins in six matches.
FA Cup Football
A look ahead to this weekend's
FA Cup semi-finals.
Horse Racing
The Grand Liverpool
Steeplechase was first staged in 1839. Eight years later the race was immortally dubbed "The Grand National".
However, the mystique of the race lies in the name of its first ever winner, Lottery.
Julian Wilson and Peter Scudamore unravel this year's mystery - who can win horse racing's most charismatic steeplechase?

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.
