: Euro 2000 - Match of the Day Live

England v
Germany Gary Lineker introduces live coverage of England's vital Group A clash with Germany at the Stade Communal in Charleroi, Belgium (kickoff 7.45pm).
In a tight group England cannot afford to slip up against their old rivals as they bid for a quarter-final place. Four years ago Germany ended England's hopes of a place in the Euro 96 final in a sudden-death shoot-out. Today's match will not go to penalties, but offers Euro 96 survivors such as David Seaman , Tony Adams and Alan Shearer the ideal opportunity to redress the balance. Neither side impressed in qualifying, but that means nothing as two of the big names in world football go head to head once again.
Highlights are at 12 midnight and a complete rerun of the match can be seen at 1.45am. See Choice.

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.

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.
