Littlewoods Cup Semi-final Second leg
Tottenham Hotspur v Arsenal
Introduced by Jimmy Hill This is more than a north London derby - they are playing for a place in the Littlewoods Challenge Cup
Final at Wembley on Sunday 5 April, which you will be able to watch live on BBCtv. This afternoon Tottenham kick-off with what could prove a priceless advantage - the goal by the season's highest scorer, clive ALLEN , that won them the first leg 1-0 at Highbury three weeks ago. But both camps affirm that, at the halfway stage, this semi-final is still right in the melting pot. Arsenal have already been successful at White Hart Lane this year.
One thing is guaranteed: five weeks today, one of these clubs will be stepping out at Wembley.


Introduced By: Jimmy Hill
Unknown: Clive Allen
Commentator: Barry Davies

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.
