: Football Champions of the World

Introduced by Frank Bough
Recalling the greatest football achievement in our history - how England won the 1966 World Cup and for the first time became 'Champions of the World.'
Tonight: The 1966 World Cup Final at Wembley
England v West Germany
showing England's dramatic victory in extra time, including what was to become the most controversial goal in football history.
It was in the 100th minute of a gruelling game that Geoff Hurst smacked the ball against the underside of the West German crossbar, and after what seemed like an eternity the referee signalled 'Goal.'
'It was not a goal!' headlined Bild Zeitung. 'The ball crossed the line,' says the FA's World Cup report.
Tonight's programme analyses that goal using West German film. On the eve of a new World Cup, see again the match and the goal that made football history.


Presenter: Frank Bough
Producer: Leslie Kettley

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
