: Match of the Day Live:FA Cup Final

Liverpool v West Ham United
All the magic of the Cup is about to envelop the two Premiership sides who line up this afternoon for the 125th annual showpiece occasion at Cardiff's Millennium Stadium (kick-off 3.00).
The Merseysiders, favourites for a seventh Cup win, have a slight psychological advantage, having recently beaten their opponents in the league when Luis Garcia and Hayden Mullins were sent off. Three-time winners West Ham are through to their first final since 1980, but they know how to win in Cardiff - 12 months ago they clinched promotion in the Championship play-off final.
There's plenty of time to take in the atmosphere with traditional match-day items including The Road to Cardiff, interviews and a first glimpse of the teams as their coaches leave the hotels.
Gary Lineker hosts, with commentary from John Motson and Mark Lawrenson. Highlights at 11.30pm. Producer Phil Bigwood ; Editor

Sci-Fi: Doctor Who 7.00pm BBC1
The Tardis crash-lands on Earth in what at first seems to be the present. But the skies are filled with airships, and the docile citizens suffer regular downloads of information into their brains. This parallel world is ruled by crazed megalomaniac John Lumic (played with relish by Roger Lloyd Pack), a sinister Dr Strangelove-type figure whose henchmen load London's homeless people into vans to deliver them to an unimaginable fate.
Gripping though all this is, the real interest of tonight's episode is the return of the Doctor's old foes, the Cybermen. There's a big build-up to their first appearance, and you can hear their terrifying footsteps long before they stomp into view in all their tinny majesty.
Time has moved on, of course, and they look very different from how they did in the old days. If anything, they're more scary, and there's genuine dread as they clump, clump, clump towards the Doctor and Rose (David Tennant and Billie Piper), ready to take over the world.
The story concludes next week, while Doctor Who Confidential (7.45pm BBC3) reveals more on-set secrets. (Alison Graham TV editor)

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.
