: Liverpool in Europe

Featuring live coverage of the Uefa Cup quarter-final. Genoa v Liverpool
Liverpool's best hope of success this season is progress in the Uefa Cup. Quarter-final opponents Genoa are the Italian league's oldest club but they are overshadowed by champions Sampdoria, with whom they share the Luigi Ferraris Stadium.
Liverpool have not been at their best in away legs, losing to both Finland's Kuusysi Lahti and Auxerre of France, and will encounter top names like the Brazilian Branco and Czech striker Skuhravy.
Manager Graeme Souness has overhauled the Liverpool team since returning to Anfield last year, in a bid to restore
European glory to the club.
Liverpool have won the trophy twice (in 1973 and 1976) and the European Cup four times. Commentary by Barry Davies and former England player

: QED: Supertots

Investigative science series.
Can training children in sports from an early age produce super-athletes? A Californian coach, Marv Marinovich, believes it does. He has developed a highly successful training technique which he perfected by using his own children as guinea pigs. It has turned his 21-year-old son Todd into one of the hottest properties in American football with a career that could make him a millionaire. Although his eldest daughter dropped out of the intensive training regime when she was 14, Marv has started again on his younger son, [text removed], aged 3. A former professional footballer, Marv says: "As far as I am concerned, performance is not about winning or losing but about the quality of the outcome."
Producer Christopher Tau, himself the father of a young family, commends the loving and caring relationship Marv has with his children but says, "I am an athlete too, but I would never do that to my child."
A British study of 450 young athletes looked at the physical and mental stress produced by intensive sports training in childhood and found that young bodies, not yet fully formed, are susceptible to serious, permanent injury. So are ambitious parents like Marv Marinovich putting their own children at risk?

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.
