: Match of the Day

Action from today's key games in the Premiership, including the clash of the roses at Elland Road where Leeds United entertain rivals Manchester United. The new-look Leeds side will be hoping for a repeat of last season's corresponding fixture which they surprisingly won 3-1 with goals scored by Gary McAllister, Tony Yeboah and Brian Deane. However, with Yeboah injured and McAllister now at Coventry City, Leeds will be expecting Ian Rush to hit the back of the net. Another Leeds new boy is Lee Sharpe, who joined the Yorkshire side from today's visitors for £4 million and he will be keen to impress against his old club.
It is Manchester United's ex-Leeds star Eric Cantona who will command the most attention from both the players and the crowd. He moved across the Pennines four years ago and is now arguably the most valuable player in the Premiership. Surrounded by an array of talent, Cantona led the Manchester side to the double last season - the Frenchman completing this record feat with the winning goal in the FA Cup final.
There's also talking points and goals from the day's other Premiership games. Commentary by John Motson and Tony Gubba. Introduced by Gary Lineker, with Alan Hansen and Trevor Brooking.

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.

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.
