Atletico Madrid v Aston Villa
Live coverage of the Uefa Cup quarter-final first-leg tie, from Estadio Vicente Calderon.
Brian Little 's Aston Villa are the last remaining English representatives in this competition, havingconquered Bordeaux, Athletic Bilbao and Steaua Bucharest in the three previous rounds. Atletico Madrid, managed by former Luton Town playerRadomir Antic, could, however, be the toughest opponents Aston Villa have met in the Uefa Cup so far, having already knocked out Leicester
City, Salonika and Croatia Zagreb. But Villa, who won the European Cup in 1982, should be capable of pulling off a good result.
Introduced by Desmond Lynam with Alan Hansen and Trevor Brooking. Commentary by John Motson with David Pleat . Producer Paul McNamara ; Editor

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
