: Liverpool in Europe

Liverpool vSwarovski Tirol Back at Anfield for the second leg of this Uefa Cup third-round tie, Liverpool will be looking for a repeat of their home form in the previous round, when they put in a spirited performance to score three times and defeat
Auxerre 3-2 on aggregate. But their Austrian opponents have been in good form in the competition so far, beating the Norwegian side Tromso 3-2 on aggregate and trouncing
Greece's PAOK Salonika 4-0.
Their international striker
Christoph Westerthaler is
Austria's top scorer this season and has already netted five goals in the Uefa Cup.
Tirol's coach is the former
Austrian international Ernst
Happel, who guided Holland to the World Cup Final in 1978, and since he arrived in Innsbruck the club has won two
Championship titles and last year lost the title to FK Austria by just one point. Interestingly, last season Tirol beat Kuusysi Lahti , Liverpool's Uefa Cup first-round opponents, 7-1 in the European Cup, before crashing out to Real Madrid in the next round.

Tonight the DEA's
Michele Leonhart , a top woman agent, leads her team in several dangerous undercover operations on the streets of San Diego. "I'm not a gun lover but, to me, it's like another partner - it is going to save my life some day," she says. At gunpoint, she drags Chico, a cocaine dealer, from his car and confronts him with a stark choice: ten years jail or turn informer. For
Leonhart, her informants are absolutely essential: "We need them. There's no quick fix to the drugs problem." She goes under cover to buy crack cocaine in an operation to shut down a neighbourhood crack house: "Where there are drugs, there's violence."

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.
