: Match of the Day Live

Introduced by Jimmy Hill FA Cup fifth round Tottenham Hotspur v Everton
Live coverage of a fascinating cup tie between two of the most gifted sets of players in the land. Tottenham share with Aston Villa the distinction of having lifted the cup seven times and now seek to claim the record outright, while Everton, who have won the trophy four times, are again bidding for the 'double'. They came close to achieving it last year, winning the championship
(as well as the Cup Winners' Cup) and then losing at Wembley to Manchester
United's ten men. On the way to last season's championship success Everton won 2-1 at
White Hart Lane in April, and early this season they again took three points there (1-0). With the FA Cup their only major target, Spurs now seek revenge.

: The Living Isles

A ten-part natural history of Britain and Ireland.
Presented by Julian Pettifer 7: Fresh Pastures
As our ancestors cleared the forest, so nature responded with fields of flowers. The colourful sights and sounds of these first pastures can still be discovered on the Machair of the Hebrides, and on the downs of southern England. Over the last 5,000 years man and nature in partnership have created a tapestry of great beauty - home to rare orchids, delicate blue butterflies, glow-worms and rabbits.
Today the rasping call of the corncrake still echoes over Irish flood meadows and in the dales of northern
England, curlew and snipe rear their chicks in this secret world of grass-stalks. Photography

: Songs of Praise

from HM Prison, Maidstone On the first Sunday in Lent, Roger Royle visits men in a modern wilderness, for whom the word 'penitence' holds special significance. Roger meets prisoners who have come to know God's forgiveness in a place of loneliness and hurt; he talks to Ray Norville , a prison officer, who believes that, in the end, only God can change men's hearts; and also speaks to Tom Marriot , a prison visitor concerned to help ex-prisoners in the outside world.
Inmates and staff are joined in the prison by men of HMP Standford Hill, women from HMP East Sutton Park and local choirs.

: The Hammer and the Cross

A four part Everyman series 2: Poland - The Pilgrims' Protest
"There were many times when Poland did not even exist on the map, and it's only faith that has enabled us to survive.' (LECH WALESA) The Black Madonna of Czestochowa, 'Queen of Poland', has been the symbol of Poland's faith and national tradition for six centuries. In today's Poland the pilgrimage to the Black Madonna is also an act of defiance and solidarity. Last year eight million Poles made the pilgrimage, and on 15 August alone, half a million converged on Czestochowa This film examines why 40 years of Communist rule in Poland have strengthened the Catholic Church's power and influence, and why the pilgrimage has become even more popular since the banning of Solidarity.
Beginning in Gdansk, at the church of Lech Walesa , Everyman follows in the footsteps of the pilgrims and examines the faith of the Polish Catholics, their martyrs, their leaders and their adversaries.

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
