Live coverage of this international friendly at Old Trafford (kick-off 8.05).
With just 11 days to go until England's World Cup campaign gets under way in Frankfurt, Sven-Goran Eriksson has little time to make final tweaks to a side he hopes will be good enough to end a 40-year wait for a major trophy. Will Theo Walcott be on show? With expectations high and Rooney sidelined, he needs all the experience he can get. And will fellow striker Michael Owen be stretching his legs? One thing's for sure: a strong showing from Joe Cole ,
Steven Gerrard et al will not only boost confidence but also send a warning to fellow Group B opponents Paraguay, Trinidad and Tobago, and Sweden.
Introduced by Gary Lineker , with commentary from John Motson and Mark Lawrenson.

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.
