Only a Game

Synopsis

We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
Match number 12 of the World Cup - Scotland v Brazil - was played at the Waldstadion in Frankfurt on 18 June before 62,000 spectators. They were joined through television by an audience of hundreds of millions throughout the world. The effect of this one match was recorded on that day by 16 film crews scattered through seven countries. The cast includes surfers in Rio, Billy Bremner , a Yugoslavian peasant and his family, Scots fans in Glasgow, and television technicians in Geneva, London, Brussels and Frankfurt - all brought together because 22 men kicked a polka-dot ball around. Narrated by IAN HOLM

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.
