Littlewoods Cup
Semi-Final, Second Leg
Luton Town v Oxford United Introduced by Jimmy Hill
Luton were barred from last season's Littlewoods Cup because of their ban on away fans. They had second thoughts for 1987-88 and now, after drawing the first leg of this semi-final 1-1 at Oxford, will fancy their chance of reaching only the second final in their history.
Oxford surprised many when they won the Milk Cup two years ago, so they have the flavour of Wembley. They are also fighting for their First Division lives.

: Whicker's World: Living with Waltzing Matilda

Alan Whicker introduces the eighth of ten films.
Is the Aussie male all he's cracked down to be - a pot-bellied, beer-swilling chauvinist? Sally Hurley, ex-bunny croupier, would agree. So would Liverpudlian Clare Jukka, who sees a lot of outback wives in her clinic in a remote Northern Territories township.
Sue Becker - the BBC's keep-fit Green Goddess of the early 70s - yearns for the company of European men in her lonely Hobart home.
But liberated executive, Jane Deknatel from Oxford, sees something almost wimpish in the Sydney male; and Hazel Small from Aberdeen shows Alan Whicker that a woman in Australia can pioneer as well as a man.

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.
