Nottingham Forest v Lyon
Nottingham Forest, sole British survivors in the Uefa Cup, begin their bid fora place in the quarterfinals of the competition and there is live coverage of this third round first leg match against French side Lyon.
Forest's disciplined performances which put out Swedish side Malmo and another French team, Auxerre, have saved British football from total embarrassment in this season's
European competitions. In both legs against Auxerre the Forest defence was forced to soak up considerable pressure and owed much to goalkeeper Mark Crossley 's performance in the goalless second leg at the City Ground. Forest's
Steve Stone had scored the solitary goal of the tie in the away leg.
Now Frank Clark 's side face another stiff test. Lyon have been disappointing in the French League this season, winning only three of theirfirst 15 matches and scoring less than one goal a game in the process. But it is in Europe that the Frenchmen have been at their best. In the second round they emerged emphatic and surprising4-1 aggregate winners against the powerful Italian side Lazio.
Introduced by Desmond Lynam , with Alan Hansen and Jimmy Hill , and commentary by John Motson and Trevor Brooking.

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.
