: European Football Championship Final

Live coverage from the Ullevi Stadium in Gothenburg as the championship, second in importance only to the World Cup, reaches a climax.
Four years ago, in Munich's
Olympic Stadium, Holland beat the Soviet Union 2-0, with goals from Ruud Gullit and Marco Van Basten , to win the championship for the first time. When the Dutch began their defence of the title against
Scotland two weeks ago, they were aware that no country has won successive championships. Indeed, only West Germany has won the championship twice, in 1972 and 1980. The Soviet Union, now playing as the CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States), have made four final appearances but were winners only once, in 1960. Of the other nations who qualified for the final stages in Sweden, France is the only other previous winner, in 1984, when current manager Michel Platini scored one of the goals in a 2-0 victory against Spain. A now unified Germany, the CIS, plus England, Scotland, host nation Sweden and Denmark (the 11th-hour replacement for banned
Yugoslavia), all entered the tournament aiming to become the eighth different name on the trophy. The 1996 championships will be staged in England. Introduced by Desmond Lynam with Jimmy Hill and Terry Venables.
Commentary by John Motson and Trevor Brooking. Executive producer Jim Reside Editor Brian Barwick

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.
