Japan v Brazil
A team that impressed against hosts Germany in a pre-tournament friendly take on the ever-mercurial holders in Dortmund (kick-off 8.00).
Brazil's endless production line of incredible talent has again installed them as favourites for a sixth World Cup title this summer. In Ronaldinho and Ronaldo they possess two men who have won half the World Player of the Year awards on offer over the last decade. Then there are attacking full-backs Cafu and Roberto Carlos , AC Milan playmaker Kaka and Inter striker Adriano. Japan have it all to do if they are to satisfy the yearnings of a passionate following whose interest in the game skyrocketed when they reached the second round four years ago.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
