: World Cup 98 Live

France v Saudi Arabia
Live coverage of the Group C clash from the Stade de France in St Denis (kick-off at 8pm). This isthe host nation's second match of the finals and a game they are expected to win with some ease, with the overall odds against the Saudis very long indeed.
ManyofAimeJacquet's strong squad play their domestic football outside
France - several of them in Italy. Defender Marcel Desailly is with AC Milan, as is midfielder
Ibrahim Ba , while Youri Djorkaeff plays for Uefa Cup-winners Inter Milan. Christian Karembeu also enjoyed a good season in European competition, having been part of the Real Madrid side that won the European Cup last month.
In contrastthe Saudi side is based at home but a good tournament could attract the attention of European managers. One player keen to try his luck in Europe is leading striker Sami Al-Jaber , who averaged nearly a goal every two games at international level and is seen by many as the best forward in Asia. Striker Saeed Al-Owairanwillbehopingto re-create the form that helped to take the Saudis to the second round in USA 94, although his recent and lengthy suspension could be to his detriment.
France and Saudi Arabia have never met before and, although the outcome seems to be a foregone conclusion, the home team should bear in mind their opponents' strong showing in America - not to mention the factthat coach Carlos Alberto
Parreira is leading his fourth team to the finals, a remarkable feat that has been achieved only byone other coach.
Introduced by Desmond Lynam with Alan Hansen and David Ginola , with commentary by John Motson and Chris Waddle. Plus brief highlights of the Group C game between South Africa and Denmark played this afternoon.

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.
