: Match of the Day live-Cup Winners' Cup Final: Chelsea v VtB Stuttgart

Live coverage from the Rasunda Stadium, Stockholm (kickoff 7.45pm), as Chelsea strive to win the European Cup Winners' Cup for the second time in their history. In Chelsea's only other appearance in a European final, they won the trophy in 1971, beating Real Madrid 2-1 in a replay in Athens. If player-manager Gianluca Vialli's talented, multi-national squad triumphs tonight it will be the third time an English club has won this tournament since England's readmission to European competition in 1990. Chelsea secured their place in Stockholm with a stirring semi-final victory over Italian side Vicenza, with Mark Hughes volleying the aggregate winner 14 minutes from time in the second leg at Stamford Bridge. In the other semi-final Stuttgart overcame Lokomotiv Moscow of Russia with a 3-1 aggregate win.

Introduced by Desmond Lynam with Alan Hansen and Martin O'Neill, with commentary by Barry Davies and Trevor Brooking. Coverage continues with the second half at 8.35pm.

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.
