: Match of the Day Live

Liverpool v Slovan Liberec
Live coverage of Liverpool's Uefa Cup second-round, first-leg tie against Slovan Liberec at Anfield introduced by Gary Lineker.
Having squeezed past Rapid Bucharest on aggregate in the first round, Liverpool face a rising Czech side who will be keen to upset the odds in what is undoubtedly one of the biggest games in their history. The current Czech Cup holders, Slovan are also forging ahead in the domestic league. Liverpool manager Gerard Houllier has already identified their Argentinian striker Leandro Lazzaro Liuni as a man to watch closely.
On paper, though, Liverpool should be too strong for their opponents, who despite their current upsurge have no players from the Czech national team. The Reds' side is jam-packed with internationals; two of them, Patrick Berger and Vladimir Smicer , both represented the Czech Republic at Euro 2000. Commentary comes from John Motson , with summaries from Trevor Brooking , while Alan Hansen and Mark Lawrenson provide analysis in the studio. (S) WEBSITE: www.bbc.co.uk/football

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.
