AS Roma v Leeds United
Live coverage of this evening's
Uefa Cup second-round, first-leg match from the Olympic Stadium. in Rome (kickoff at 7.45pm). Leeds endured the drama of a penalty shootout against
Maritimo of Portugal to land this potentially difficult second-round clash with the club that finished fourth in Italy's Serie A last season. United's preparations will not have been helped by the recent disruption brought about by the departure of manager
George Graham and the search for his successor. A disciplined performance will be required tonight, especially if Leeds are to secure any away goals that can so often prove vital in European competition.
Roma comfortably overcame
Danish side Silkeborg3-0 on aggregate intheirfirst-roundtie and can boast a formidable multi-national squad that includes two stars of Brazil's
France 98 World Cup party-Cafu and Aldair.
Both clubs' only previous
European successes have been inthiscompetition, under its original title of the Fairs Cup-Leeds won the trophy on two occasions, in 1968 and 1971, while Roma fans have to look back as far as 1961 for their team's only triumph.

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.
