Match of the Day Live

Introduced by Jimmy Hill FA Cup fifth round Tottenham Hotspur v Everton
Live coverage of a fascinating cup tie between two of the most gifted sets of players in the land. Tottenham share with Aston Villa the distinction of having lifted the cup seven times and now seek to claim the record outright, while Everton, who have won the trophy four times, are again bidding for the 'double'. They came close to achieving it last year, winning the championship
(as well as the Cup Winners' Cup) and then losing at Wembley to Manchester
United's ten men. On the way to last season's championship success Everton won 2-1 at
White Hart Lane in April, and early this season they again took three points there (1-0). With the FA Cup their only major target, Spurs now seek revenge.

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.
