Southampton v Tottenham Hotspur
Glenn Hoddle takes Spurs to former club Southampton in an all-Premiership third-round FA Cup tie (kickoff 5.45). Although both sides are hoping for a European spot through the league, the FA Cup will probably be their last chance for silverware this season. Southampton, under Gordon Strachan , have built a formidable home record this season but will be keen to avoid a repeat of the two sides' last cup clash - a 6-2 away win for Spurs in 1995. John Motson provides commentary on the live coverage from St Mary's Stadium. Producer Phil Bigwood ; Editor Paul Armstrong FA Cup highlights in Match of the Day at 11.15pm

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.
