Introduced by Harry Carpenter
League Cup Football
Highlights of one of tonight's semi-final matches which are played on a two-leg format. Commentator JOHN MOTSON World Championship Boxing from Las Vegas Wilfred Benitez (Puerto Rico) v Roberto Duran (Panama) for the WBC Light-Middleweight Championship
A clash of the ' super-champions '. Benitez (23) is one of the few men to win world titles at three different weights and he defends the crown he took so savagely from Britain's Maurice Hope. Duran (30) won two world titles before a brief retirement and his nickname ' Stoneface' reflects a grim, uncompromising approach, which appeared to crack when he ' turned his back' and retired in his last fight against ' Sugar' Ray Leonard.
Commentator HARRY CARPENTER

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.
