: World Cup Grandstand Argentina v Nigeria

Argentina, twice world
I champions and runners-up four years ago, continue their group D progress against Nigeria, making their first appearance in the finals, in a match coming live from Boston's Foxboro Stadium.
Argentina scraped through to the finals, beating Australia in a play-off. That was where
Maradona, who ended the final in tears after a shabby
Argentine performance in the final against Germany, reappeared in the team.
The skilful but relatively inexperienced Nigerians should not be underestimated. Most of their squad feature in European league football, with British attention focusing on Efan Ekoku who plays for Norwich City. There are also highlights of the group F games between
Belgium and Holland and Saudi Arabia against Morocco.
Introduced by Bob Wilson , with Terry Venables and Alan Hansen , commentary by John Motson and John Fashanu.

Thriller starring Judd Nelson, Robert Loggia

A serial killer is on the loose in Los Angeles, apparently choosing his victims at random from a telephone book and making them participate in their own deaths. New York cop Sam Dietz has just been made a detective and is anxious to get on the trail of the "Sunset Killer", but his world weary partner Bill Malloy has seen it all before, or so he thinks.

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.
