: Liverpool in Europe

Liverpool v
Kuusysi Lahti
Live coverage from Anfield of Liverpool Football Club's much-awaited return to
European competition, six years after the disaster at
Heysel. Tonight they take on Kuusysi Lahti of Finland in a UEFA Cup first round tie. Manager Graeme Souness , who won three European Cup winner's medals as a player at Liverpool, has now to emulate the feats of past managers Bill Shankly , Bob Paisley and Joe Fagan. He has already invested millions in international players of the calibre of Dean Saunders , Mark Wright and Mark Walters in the hope that their experience with the Wales and England teams can be put to good use. Kuusysi were
Finnish champions in 1989 and 1990, and the team enjoyed a memorable run to the European Cup quarter-finals in 1988. Liverpool's last success in Europe was when they beat Roma on penalties seven years ago to win the European Cup for the fourth time. They have won the UEFA Cup twice before, in 1973 and 1976. Introduced by Desmond Lynam , with commentary by John Motson and Trevor Brooking.

: Inside Story

The return of the documentary series.
The Search. The last
American GIs left Vietnam in 1975. They left behind them the Amerasians - the children of American soldiers and Vietnamese women. Following the recent US Amerasian
Homecoming Act, thousands of these youngsters are expected to arrive in the States in search of their fathers and a new way of life. Three young Amerasians,
Sonny Ngygen , Linda Vo and Trang Ngugen , all in their early 20s and all haunted by the question 'Who am I?' have just arrived in the States.
Their stories are interweaved with the experiences of American-born children of GIs who died in the war, and set against a backdrop of 1990s
America during the Gulf War. Director Michael Grigsby
Executive producer Paul Hamann

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
