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.
Germany v USA Live coverage of Germany'sfirstgame in Group F, from the Pare des
Princes, Paris (kickoff 8pm). Germany are Europe's most successful side. three-times World Cup winners and the current European champions. Some consider Germany's ageing squad to be past its peak, but the wealth of their experience should still put them among the front runners for the trophy. Their Italian-based striker, Oliver Bierhoff , is likely to be a key man in France, while
Lothar Matthaeus replaces their sweeper Matthias Sammer , who still has a knee injury.
It is the USA's third successive final, having previously not qualified since 1950. They have had a good build up, including a 1-0 win over Brazil and a 3-0 win in Austria, and the feeling within the US camp is that they are capable of reaching the second round.
Tonight's programme also includes highlights of England's openinggame againstTunisia, and today's other Group G match between Romania and Colombia.
Presented by Desmond Lynam , with analysis from Alan Hansen , David Ginola and Ally McCoist and commentary from Barry Davies , with Trevor Brooking , John Motson , David Pleat and Jon Champion.

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.
