World Cup Football:
San Marino v England
Since the 2-0 defeat In
Holland last month there has been heated discussion about the future of football in England. It's all been said before, of course - when England failed to qualify for the 1974 and 1978 World Cups.
Tonight there is live coverage of the game in which England could, given the right set of results, still qualify for the World Cup finals in the United States. To do so they must first win by seven clear goals in Bologna, the Italian city where San Marino play their important home games. At the same time Poland's experimental side have to pull off an unlikely victory over Holland. There will be reports of that match.
Omens for England?
David Platt scored a last minute
England winner in the same stadium during the 1990 World Cup finals and that Platt also scored four times when England beat San Marino 6-0 at
Wembley in February.
Plus news of the decisive qualifiers between Wales and Romania in Cardiff and Northern
Ireland and the Republic of Ireland in Belfast.

: States of Terror: The Tangled Web

Governments throughout the world are involved in an escalating battle against terrorists, a battle highlighted by Peter Taylor in five documentaries each examining an instance of terrorism over the past two decades.
The first programme tells the story of Silke Maier-Witt, for 15 years one of Europe's most wanted women. Her middle class family were devastated when they discovered her role in the brutal terrorist group, the Red Army Faction. Wanted for murder, she fled to East Germany where, with a new face and identity, she received protection from the Stasi secret police. Only when the Berlin wall came down was Maier-Witt arrested when she chose to betray her former terrorist comrades and tell her story.
Subsequent films explore the aftermath of the massacre at Munich of Israeli Olympic athletes by members of the Palestinian terrorist group Black September; the killing of alleged undercover agents in Northern Ireland; the Spanish government's response to the violence of the Basque separatist group Eta and the conflict between the United States and Islamic fundamentalist terrorists, when the United States was driven out of Lebanon by the raids of suicide bombers.

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.
