Everton v Manchester United
Two North West rivals with a renowned FA Cup pedigree vie for supremacy in this eagerly awaited all-Premiership fifth-round tie (kick-off 5.30).
The last two FA Cup meetings between these two sides have been finals, with Manchester Utd winning in 1985 and Everton lifting the trophy a decade on. Fans' emotions will be running particularly high tonight - former Toffees wunderkind Wayne Rooney is set to return to Goodison Park for the first time since joining Alex Ferguson 's side last summer. Who will make it through to Monday's quarter-final draw?
Presented by Gary Lineker and Alan Hansen , with Peter Reid and Peter Schmeichel (who reappears at 120am). John Motson and Mark Lawrenson commentate.

: Casualty: Hoping, Wishing, Longing

A Valentine's party ends in horror for Bex. Meanwhile, the net closes in on Ellen.
Alison Graham on a difficult subject in TV drama: p 65

Medical Drama: Casualty 8.10pm BBC1
The usual welter of disparate cases faces the Holby staff this week, from a young man with serious injuries after being trapped under a car, to a girl fighting for her life after an allergic reaction.
As usual, though, the medical personnel are more wrapped up in their own emotional predicaments. Daft Bex (Sarah Manners) is moping around after ex-boyfriend Pete, and attends a Valentine's Day ball in the hope of erasing him from her memory. Unfortunately, as luck would have it, she bumps into Pete on the dance floor (as you do). The evening doesn't end happily.
Abs, meanwhile, continues to needle dim Ellen, who's up to her ears in trouble, though he takes a little time to meddle in a pregnant teenager's personal life, jumping to the wrong conclusion in the process.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
