FA Cup Fifth Round
Wimbledon v Everton
Introduced by Jimmy Hill Ten years ago Wimbledon were non-league nobodies.
Now they're not only rubbing shoulders with the elite in the championship, but they have knocked over quite a few too. Not Everton though - they have taken the full six points off 'the Dons' this season.
But this is the Cup, which for Everton represents one leg of the double that was achieved last year by the Red half of Merseyside.
It's a tie with a whiff of Cup history about it, whoever wins. Everton have played in the last three finals and now go for a record fourth in a row. Wimbledon's target is to reach the quarter-finals for the first time. This same fifth round two years ago is the furthest they have gone.

: * The Search for El Dorado

A three-part Everyman series exploring the impact of Christianity on South
America, 500 years after the conquistadores. 2: The City -
Battle of the Gods
Friday night fever in the cities of Brazil is not so much about disco-dancing as spirittrancing. It is when the 30 million practitioners of Umbanda, a voodo-like cult that started this century, perform their strange rites. Umbanda, a synthesis of African and Amerindian gods with Catholicism, is Brazil's fastest-growing religion. At spiritist centres, like those run by Abraham in the slums of Rio, or Marilda or on luxurious Governor's Island, possession states are used to grant favours, cure illness or lift curses. The Catholic
Church, once vehemently anti-Umbanda, now tolerates it. But for the new evangelical churches, toleration is an anathema: their Friday night services are a spectacle of mass exorcism, a battle between God and the Devil.

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.
