: Sportsnight Special: Chelsea v FC Bruges

A goal by Gert Verheyen of Bruges, scored with just seven first ten minutes remaining, means that Chelsea face a difficult task in this evening's European Cup Winners' Cup quarter-final, second leg, which is screened live from Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea appeared to have done all the hard work in Bruges two weeks ago when they held out for more than 80 minutes without conceding a goal. But when Verheyen outjumped the Chelsea defence to head home from close range some of that good work had been undone.
That goal, however, sets up the classic situation in European matches, with Chelsea needing at feast two goals to qualify for the semi-finals and Bruges knowing that by scoring again tonight they could ease themselves through on the away goals ruling, it means that although Chelsea must attack they cannot afford to relax in defence.
Chelsea will be hoping that history might repeat itself, in 1971 Chelsea lost in Bruges, won the second leg and then went on to beat the mighty Real Madrid in a replayed final of the European Cup Winners' Cup in Athens. Their manager Glenn Hoddle, who now faces one of the biggest nights in his career as a manager, also has happy memories of a win over the Belgian side when he was playing for the French League team, Monaco.

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.
