: Match of the Day Live

Introduced by Jimmy Hill Queens Park Rangers u Manchester United
For Manchester United, with the most expensive squad ever assembled in British football, there is an entirely new experience tonight when they play for League Championship points on an artificial pitch. Their first League victory this season was against Queens Park Rangers on the opening day at Old Trafford, and now live, full-length coverage of the return fixture promises an intriguing contest of skill as Rangers, last year's Second Division champions, set out to avenge that defeat in their own compact west London stadium.
And at half-time, the result of the November/December Goal of the Month competition, and a report from Budapest on the progress of JAYNE TORVILL and CHRISTOPHER DEAN in the European Ice Dance Championship. Commentator BARRY DAVIES

Remington's a fan but Laura thinks she's suffering from delusions. Has Veronica read too many bad scripts or is somebody trying to write her out altogether?

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.
