: Euro 96 - the Preview

Desmond Lynam , in discussion with Ruud Gullit , Alan Hansen and Gary Lineker , looks forward to the European Championship which kicks offtomorrow.
The tournament - the biggest sporting event in this country since the World Cup Finals of 1966 - promises action and excitement both on and off the pitch. Holders Denmark will be fightingto retain the trophy, but Holland, Italy and favourites Germany are all strong contenders. As well as the shock that English PFA Playerof the Year Eric Cantona and Newcastle's
David Ginola have been left out of the French squad, the tournament's finish is also significant for markingthe end of Terry Venables 's time at the helm for England and the handingoverof responsibilities to Glenn Hoddle.
The programme features comments from Germany's JurgenKlinsmann and ManchesterUnited and Denmark goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel , as well as the England and Scotland coaches, Terry Venables and Craig Brown. ProducerVivien Kent: Editor Philip Bernie

9.30pm BBC1 Memorise these numbers: one - four - seven - one. They could save a life. At least, that's the dramatic moral of one of tonight's stories.
Shirley Whitehouse, 56, normally enjoyed good health until one day she was violently sick and collapsed. She crawled to the phone, tried to call her daughter but, in her distress, misdialled, then blacked out. Fortunately for her, she'd got through to conscientious car repair man John Wilcox, who checked the mystery call by dialling 1471. He got through, discovered that Mrs Whitehouse was seriously ill (in fact she'd suffered a heart attack) and called the ambulance. Help arrived in the nick of time, and the patient is now fully recovered.

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.
