: Match of the Day Live

England v Poland
England's World Cup fate could hang in the balance at Old Trafford in Manchester as they face Poland (kick-off 7.45) in their final Group Six qualifier.
If England defeated Austria last Saturday at this same venue, a similar result tonight will send them directly through to next summer's tournament in Germany. Anything less and Sven-Goran Eriksson 's men may face the unappealing prospect of a play-off.
The home side will be hoping for a repeat of the 2-1 win from the reverse game in Warsaw, with Spurs striker Jermain Defoe marking his first international start with a superbly taken goal. But no game against tonight's opponents can fail to mention the infamous night in 1973 when failure to beat the Poles at Wembley cost England a place in the World Cup finals.
Gary Lineker hosts. Commentary by John Motson and Graham Le Saux. The match is repeated at 1.10am. Editor Paul Armstrong INTERACTIVE: rolling highlights, in-vision scores, audio options, statistics and news available via the red handset button

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.
