: The Three Tenors in Concert 1994

When Jose Carreras , Placido Domingo and Luciano Pavarotti got together in a concert to coincide with the last World Cup final, it was heralded as the musical event of the decade. Certainly the excitement it generated and the viewing figures it achieved seem to confirm this.
Now the world's greatest tenors return to singtogether once more under the baton of Zubln Mehta. This concert was performed live last night to an audience of 56,000 at the Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles as a musical prelude to the World Cup final.
Details of the concert programme are shrouded in secrecy but it seems likely that each tenor will sing a selection of operatic arias and the American, Italian or Spanish songs with which they are particularly associated, including works by Bernstein,
Rogers and Hammerstein, Verdi and Puccini.
They will also perform medleys of popular music which have become a trademark of their collaboration since their
1990 concert and the rumour is that they will sing Nessun
Dorma, the 1990 World Cup anthem, as an encore.

: World Cup Grandstand

The World Cup Final
From the original nations that entered the 15th World Cup just two remain. And today, with a
12.30pm local time kick-off, they meet in the final. There is live coverage of the match from the Rose Bowl, Pasadena, the vast stadium just seven miles from Los Angeles. Extra-time will be played if the scores are level after 90 minutes, and If there is still no winner the final will be decided by a penalty shoot-out.
If there were doubts that the United States, without a national league of their own, should stage football's premier event they have been dispelled after a month of huge attendances, excellent organisation and, above all, superb football.
Before the tournament began
Brazil were the favourites, and in Romario they had the man to be potentially the player of the tournament. But Brazil have not been world champions since their brilliant 1970 side won the old Jules Rimet trophy for a third time and were allowed to keep it.
Since then West Germany and Argentina have been the dominant nations, with only Italy's success in 1982, breaking their monopoly. The Germans won on home soil in 1974, Argentina did the same in 1978, while the two countries have contested the last two finals - Argentina winning in 1986 and West Germany in 1990. There must be a change this year with Argentina going out at the second stage.
Coverage of the final is introduced by Desmond Lynam with Jimmy Hill , Terry Venables and Alan Hansen.
Executive producer Malcolm Kemp Editor Brian Barwick
As coverage of the football Is live, and extra time could be played, subsequent programmes may run late.

: Heart of the Matter

Ignorance or Bliss
In Britain, 8,000 under 16-year-olds get pregnant every year and last year over 1,000 under 19-year-olds were diagnosed as HIV positive. But education secretary
John Patten 's new guidelines for sex education, which will come into force at the beginning of the next school term, give parents the opportunity to withdraw their children from sex education classes, including those on HIV/Aids and sexually transmitted diseases.
Joan Bakewell asks how we can best reduce these figures - by protecting children from too much information, or by giving them the unvarnished facts.

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.
