SPORTS FLASH!
On Wednesday (BBC1, 10.15 pm Sportsnight) Scotland play the first tag of their game against Australia, the winners of the Oceania group, in the last stage of the qualifying rounds of the World Cap. The match is at Hampden Park and commentator Archie Macpherson believes that Scotland 'really must qualify for Mexico by winning the first game by such a margin that their trip down wider is purely academic'. The problems of the long trip to Australia for the second leg have been heightened by the reluctance of English league clubs to release players for such a long period. Whatever happens though skipper Graeme Souness has a verbal agreement with his club, Sampdoria, and intends to lead his side out in both matches. To anticipate the result of any World Cup game is dangerous, but if Scotland wit by a good margin at home it should see them to Mexico and their fourth World Cap finals in succession.

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
