: The Infinite Voyage

Crisis in the Atmosphere. The world is in trouble and many scientists say it's our own fault. This film looks at global warming and the hole in the ozone layer over the South Pole and shows what happened to turn the air we breathe into something that threatens to change and, in some cases, eliminate almost every form of life on earth.

: World Cup Grandstand Norway v Republic of Ireland

The Republic of Ireland return to the Giants'
Stadium in New York, where they met Italy in their first match, in a game that decides their immediate World Cup destiny. There's live coverage as Norway provide the group E opposition, with a place in the last 16 hopefully there for the taking.
It was always goingto be a keenly fought group and as England have found on three relatively recent occasions. Norway are a difficult side to beat. It is also true that the Norwegians play a style similar to Jack Chariton 's republic side, where the aim is to get forward quickly.
Meanwhile in Washington the other game in the group between Italy and Mexico could also play a part in fashioning Irish hopes. Italy were pre-tournament favourites to win the group and there will be news of the match's progress with highlights to follow.
Introduced by Desmond Lynam , with Terry Venables and David O'Leary , commentary by John Motson , Liam Brady , Tony Gubba and Chris Waddle.

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.
