: World Cup Grandstand

England v Egypt (Group F) live from Cagliari, and from Palermo: Republic of Ireland v Holland
(Group F). The final set of matches in Group F - the winner of the Group is set to play its first match in the knock-out stage in Bologna; second place takes the team to
Genoa. England has played Egypt only once, winning 4-0 in Cairo four years ago. However, the Africans have developed a promising squad and England, having experienced a goal-less draw with Morocco in the last World Cup, will not be underestimating them. Meanwhile, the Republic of Ireland and Holland lock horns again. Their last meeting produced only a one-goal victory for the Dutch.
Commentary by Barry Davies and Trevor Brooking in Cagliari and John Motson and Liam Brady in Palermo. Introduced by Desmond Lynam.

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.
