Introduced by Jimmy Hill
Manchester United v Arsenal At the start of the season, opinion was widely held that if Liverpool were to be denied a fourth successive
Championship, the prize would be most likely to go to
Manchester United or Arsenal. Experts are sometimes right, and in the early months of 1984-85 United and Arsenal have gone above Liverpool in both the table and the odds. But the betting on tonight's match will be close. Only one thing is certain - Ron Atkinson and Don Howe desperately want to win their first Canon League title as managers.
Arsenal have been Champions eight times, the latest in 1971 when, coached by Howe, they did the double. The last of United's seven League successes was in 1967. Commentator ALAN PARRY
Studio producer MURRAY NEEDHAM Series producer JOHN SHREWSBURY Editor BOB ABRAHAMS

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.
