: Here and Now

The current-affairs magazine, presented by Juliet Morris.
For many people finding the ideal partner is a decision that is far too important to leave to chance. Tonight's programme reports on how dating agencies are cashing in on lonely hearts by putting a big price tag on love, with companies charging over £1,000 for just a dozen introductions. Kaye Adams joins a couple on their first date to discover if the agencies can find the perfect match and goes undercover to expose the psychological techniques that persuade some vulnerable singles to part with their cash.
Plus John Walters meets a Scottish crofter who, in his concern that the number of crofters has fallen by two-thirds over the last 20 years, has called on Prince Charles to intervene and help to preserve the traditional way of life.

: World Cup 98 Live

Scotland v Morocco
Live coverage from the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard in St Etienne as Scotland playtheirfinal, and potentially decisive, Group A match against Morocco (kickoff 8pm).
In each oftheirseven previous appearances in the World Cup finals, Scotland have failed to get beyond the first round, and theirchances of greater success this time round were dented by a narrow opening-day defeat atthe hands of reigning world champions Brazil. But confidence among coach Craig Brown 's Scottish squad was still high forthe remaining two group matches.
Morocco have graced the finals on three previous occasions, reaching the second round in 1986. The campaign ended with three first round defeats, butthistimethe
Africans began with an entertaining 2-2 draw versus Norway that helped erase memories of a lacklustre performance in the recent African Nations Cup.
Tonight's other deciding match in Group A sees Brazil facing Norway in Marseille. Plus the best of the action from this afternoon's concluding clashes in Group B, in which Italy played Austria and Chile faced Cameroon.
Introduced by Desmond Lynam , with analysis from Alan Hansen , Ally McCoist and David Ginola. Commentary from Barry Davies and David Pleat.

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.
