[Photo caption] Let battle commence: Brazil's Ronaldo and Scotland's Hendry pit more than wits in World Cup 98 Live

World Cup 98 Live 3.30pm BBC1
Scotland face Brazil at Paris's Stade de France in the first of 64 matches to decide if the South Americans retain the trophy they won four years ago in the USA. Scotland's last match in the World Cup finals was against Brazil in 1990 when they lost 1-0 in Italy. They failed to qualify for USA 94 but, since then, manager Craig Brown has fashioned an effective unit with an enviable defensive record. That will be tested by a Brazil team that boasts potential goal-scorers throughout the side from 21-year-old striker, Ronaldo, to left back Roberto Carlos.
The programme begins an hour before kick-off, with coverage of the spectacular opening ceremony and previews of the action ahead.

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.
