: Liverpool in Europe: Liverpool v Auxerre

Live coverage from Anfield of the second leg of Liverpool's second-round Uefa Cup tie with Auxerre of France. Graeme Souness's team will be hoping for a substantial victory to take them through to the third round, but Auxerre could be a difficult proposition. They have been described as a French Wimbledon and their manager
Guy Roux is a Brian Clough-type figure, so they should be a potent mix. They entered the French league only in 1970 and caused a stir recently when they signed a couple of graduates from the English FA's School of Excellence. Introduced by Desmond Lynam and Alan Hansen. Commentary by Barry Davies and Trevor Brooking.

Enforcement Administration.
The Big Match. As World Cup fever swept Europe in 1990, secret intelligence reached special agents of the DEA that some of Colombia's top cocaine barons would be travelling to Italy for the World Cup. In tonight's programme, agents plan to snatch the traffickers in Italy. Together with the Italian anti-drug force, SCA, they develop a large, complex and ambitious surveillance operation. From among the hundreds of thousands of fans, they set themselves the task of tracking down and arresting just a handful of the world's top drug traffickers.

: Taps

Tense drama starring George C Scott, Timothy Hutton, Sean Penn, Tom Cruise
When the venerated Bunker Hill Military Academy's closure is suddenly announced, to make way for the building of luxury condominiums, the cadets decide to mount a protest. However, their disciplined occupation turns into a nightmare siege. The US Army intervenes, the boys show off the skills they've been taught, and the confrontation with the outside world escalates to a gripping climax.
This film launched the careers of Penn and Cruise.

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.
