Leeds United v Liverpool
The FA Charity Shield Match is a perfect curtain-raiser to the new season and involves the unofficial championship of England between the 1973/74 League Champions (Leeds United) and the 1974 FA Cup Winners (Liverpool)
Commentator BARRY DAVIES
This all-charity game is played at Wembley Stadium, long familiar to the many international players who turn out regularly for England's two best club sides. Introduced by Jimmy Hill who also examines the key action of teams who play today under new managers - Brian Clough is the new manager at Leeds, succeeding Don Revie who is England's new international chief, and Bob Paisley is in charge at Liverpool following the surprise retirement of Bill Shankly.

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.
