: Grandstand

Introduced by Frank Bough
Football Focus on the FA Cup Third Round with/ Bob Wilson , who says:
' Only the Cup Final itself can match the anticipation and expectation arising from Third-Round day. The reason for the excitement is simple. It is the possibility of David beating Goliath ... and David has a good track record. How do such strange happenings occur? Let me take you back to January 1971 when I was goalkeeper in the Arsenal side, drawn away in the Third Round to the famous Somerset giant-killers Yeovil. From the moment tne araw was made, the non-League side took every opportunity to undermine our confidence. The Yeovil chairman singled out Frank McLintock as too old and, more pointedly, said our keeper was " slow to fast balls ". By the time we arrived for the tie, nerves were somewhat taut; serious doubts had crept in. For 36 minutes our apprehension showed clearly, but then John Radford 's header (above) eased the tension; two more goals left us clear winners. Phew! '

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.
