England v Uruguay
Gary Lineker presents live coverage from Anfield
(kick-off 8.05), as England continue preparations for the World Cup finals with a friendly against Uruguay.
The South American team came very close to qualifying for Germany, and Sven-Goran Eriksson will hope their style of play poses a similar challenge to England's first Group B opponents, Paraguay, whom they meet on 10 June. The danger men are likely to be Alvaro Recoba , Marcelo Zalayeta and Pablo Garcia , who all ply their trade for top Italian and Spanish clubs. Following his side's thrilling win over Argentina last November, this friendly match - which is also England's last game outside London before
Wembley Stadium re-opens - represents Eriksson's last chance to assess his players before naming his World Cup squad. Commentary by John Motson.

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.
