: Match of the Day Live

Liverpool v Chelsea
Introduced by Jimmy Hill with Bobby Charlton and Trevor Brooking When it comes to contention for the League Championship, little or nothing changes at Anfield. Liverpool have won it 16 times and as this season's halfway stage approaches they are in their familiar position as one of the foremost challengers.
This time last year, Chelsea were in the shake-up too, but they faded in the second half of the season and are still trying to find themselves.
The Kop, no doubt, expects three points this afternoon from a fixture that Liverpool have not lost for 51 years. Chelsea manager
JOHN HOLLINS 'S response to such a statistic would be that all bad things must come to an end. After all, Chelsea did get a draw at Anfield last season. Commentator BARRY DAVIES Series producer JOHN SHREWSBURY Editor BOB ABRAHAMS

: * Domesday

Five programmes written and presented by Michael Wood 4: The State
1086 - The Conqueror rules with an iron fist. His henchmen set fire to Saxon villages and his commissioners list everything the villagers own. Today we are a democracy. But have the rules of the power game changed?
Michael Wood uncovers an astonishing story of the development of English power. Monarchy, aristocracy, democracy.
From the farmer who paid for the Conqueror's court to the people of a Lancashire town who paid for the Empire. Domesday witnesses the struggle of a village caught up in today's nuclear debate and joins the Earl and Countess Spencer for a rare interview at Althorp.
This film asks searching questions about the state ot
Britain in 1986. As our way of life changes, will our way of government change too - as it has always changed?

: * Sports Review of 1986

Introduced by Desmond Lynam and Steve Rider
Live from the Television
Centre, the very best of the year's sporting action, drama and entertainment.
In the studio are the British sportsmen and women who have made the headlines in 1986, one of whom will receive the trophy as Sports
Personality of the Year. In the 33 years of the award, the voting has never been closer. Among the contenders: Nigel Mansell , who was robbed by a burst tyre of his first World Drivers' Championship. A trio of boxers,
Lloyd Honeyghan , Dennis Andries and Frank Bruno , who could follow McGuigan as the trophy winner.
Virginia Leng , who won the World Championship three-day-event title in Australia and helped Britain to the team title.
Gary Lineker , who finished top scorer in the 1986 World Cup, and Kenny Dalglish , who took Liverpool to a Cup and League double in his first season as player/manager.
Ian Botham , winner in 1981, who broke the Test bowling record and scored a classic century down under.
Steven Redgrave , winner of Commonwealth and World rowing titles, and Sean Kerly , whose goals took British hockey to the brink of a World Cup victory.
Fatima Whitbread, gold medallist and world-record breaker at the European
Championships; and three former winners of the Sports Personality trophy
Sebastian Coe , Steve Cram and Daley Thompson , all of whom finished ahead of the field during a memorable week in Stuttgart.
There's an award too for the Outstanding Overseas
Personality - 1986 was a year of triumph for Greg Norman , Martina Navratilova and Diego Maradona - and for the Team of the Year, as well as a surprise or two for the studio guests.

Candle in the Dark
A Meditation on the Paintings of Georges de la Tour
In the years between the wars, a mystery gradually unfolded before the eyes of the world. Thirty-eight paintings, previously lost in obscurity, were discovered and collected together. The paintings of Georges de la Tour are now regarded as among the greatest works of 17th-century art. But about the painter we know virtually nothing. All we have are a series of images, haunting tableaux, often candle-lit and usually with a religious subject. This film attempts to explore behind the surface of these mysterious works, with the help of Fr John
McDaid, sj, theatre director Ronald Eyre , novelist Peter Ackroyd , psychoanalyst Linda Freeman , and the children of HOTWELLS SCHOOL, Bristol.

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.
