: World Cup Grandstand

England v Holland
(Group F) live from Cagliari. Scotland v Sweden
(Group C) from Genoa.
A mouth-watering double-bill as England meet European champions, Holland, and Scotland face tough opponents, Sweden.
For many observers, England's match with Holland represents the most tantalising of the first-phase encounters. The Dutch are strongly fancied to add a World Cup-winning campaign to their successful time in West Germany two years ago.
England, beaten 3-1 by Holland in the European Championship, will be looking to the match as a realistic measure of whether they can go on to win the World Cup themselves. Desmond Lynam introduces the whole match live from Cagliari with Bobby Charlton. Commentators are John Motson and Trevor Brooking. Highlights of the first half of Scotland's clash with Sweden will be shown at half-time in the England v Holland match and the whole of the second half follows the conclusion of England's match. Commentator from Genoa is Barry Davies.
Plus the goals from Brazil's
(Group C) match with Costa Rica.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
