Live at 6.50
West Germany v Poland
The whole of tonight's match which opens the XIth World Cup. The holders, West Germany, face formidable opposition from the country that finished third in the last tournament. When they met in their final group match in 1974, to decide a place in the Final, West Germany won by a single goal.
The Germans, who are still managed by the veteran Helmut Schoen , have qualified automatically as reigning World Champions, but their build-up has included a 3-1 defeat in Sweden, and defeat on their own home territory - for the first time since 1974 - by Brazil
1-0 in Hamburg. Poland's qualifying group also included Portugal, Denmark and Cyprus.

: Spend, Spend, Spend

A season of BBC prize-winning artists and shows.
A play by Jack Rosenthal based on the book "Spend, Spend, Spend" by Vivian Nicholson and Stephen Smith
with Susan Littler as Vivian Nicholson and John Duttine as Keith Nicholson.
'I'm going to spend, spend, spend,' said Vivian Nicholson in 1961 when, together with her £7-a-week miner husband Keith, she won £152,319 on the pools. Now Vivian has spent it all and this play, based on her autobiography, shows what the money meant and where it went.
"Susan Littler is magnificent..." (DAILY MAIL)
"Jack Rosenthal's script, John Goldschmidt's direction and Phil Meheux's photography were faultless..." (DAILY MAIL)

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.

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.
