: Sportsnight Special

Norwich City v Bayern Munich
Norwich's victory two weeks ago in Munich's Olympic Stadium, against one of the continent's foremost clubs, ranks among the finest English performances in European competition.
Tonight there Is live coverage from Carrow Road of this Uefa
Cup second round second leg match with Norwich aiming to complete the job which started so well with that 2-1 victory. Bayern Munich, however, remain formidable opponents, with the experience of three European Cup victories, 11 European semi-final appearances in the last 20 years and a total of matches at this level behind them. Norwich, on the other hand, are enjoying their first season in Europe.
Admired for their style of play,
Norwich have tightened their defence this season and victory in Munich was typical of a team with a splendid away record in the Premiership. But they know too well that performances at home have been strangely subdued - apart from an encouraging 3-0 victory over Dutch side Vitesse Arnhem in the Uefa Cup first round.
Introduced by Desmond Lynam with Alan Hansen and commentary by John Motson and Trevor Brooking. Producer John Shrewsbury

: Thatcher: the Downing Street Years

Midnight in Moscow, Twilight in London
As Margaret Thatcher strides the world stage
_ with Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev , and the Soviet President describes his warm but combative relationship with her, her colleagues begin to feel disenchantment In the second of this four-part profile of the former Prime Minister.
The election campaign gathers pace. Party chairman Norman Tebbit sees her as a "medieval monarch wondering who has his eyes on the crown". Thatcher reveals that her advisers tried to keep her out of the limelight during this time.
Sir Geoffrey Howe feels that her trumpeted "special relationship" with Reagan was at the expense of relations with Europe, and Nigel Lawson says of her: "She distrusted her colleagues." Of Lawson, presiding over a worsening economy, Thatcher says in turn he was "a man of many talents ... but great drawbacks".
Problems with the poll tax are looming, and the Prime Minister is ever more isolated behind the newly erected Downing Street security gates.

Spy thriller starring Michael Caine, James Fox, Nigel Havers
A "mole" is discovered at the top secret British intelligence centre, the Government
Communications Headquarters (GCHQ). The controllers are worried that their American allies will panic, so they encourage employees to spy on one another to catch other Soviet spies. After a series of suspicious deaths, a young GCHQ employee tells his father that he believes the CIA are responsible and that he intends to blow the whistle on the whole operation. The father is then unwittingly drawn into the murky world of espionage.

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.
