: World Cup 98 Live

Spain v Paraguay
Live coverage of Spain's Group D encounter with Paraguay from the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard in St Etienne (kickoff8pm).
Spain have qualified for the last six World Cup finals without ever advancing beyond the quarter-finals. However, this is probably a better side than they have ever fielded before and, while Group D is a difficult one, Spain have every chance of coming through the group stage and making a significant impact on the tournament. Strong and - experienced in defence, Spain are unlikely to concede many goals, and will be hoping that players such as Fernando Morientes can provide the necessary attacking impetus.
Morientes enjoyed a remarkable debut for his country, scoring twice against Sweden in the first five minutes of his international football career.
Paraguay coach Paulo Cesar
Carpegiani believes that it is to his team's advantage that many of the players tend to pursue their careers outside their native country, reasoningthat if they were all performing in the domestic league only, Paraguay would have little chance of success. So far he has been proved correct, as Paraguay were the surprise qualifiers for France, inspired by the likes of midfielder Roberto Acuna , who plays for Real Zaragoza in Spain.
This match will be followed by brief highlights from the crucial Group D clash between Nigeria and Bulgaria. The corresponding match ended in a 3-0 win to
Nigeria when the two teams met at the last World Cupfinals.
Introduced by Desmond Lynam , with Alan Hansen and Martin O'Neill. Commentary by Barry Davies 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.

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.
