Brazil v Croatia
A mouth-watering clash sees the South Americans start the defence of their title in Berlin (kick-off 8.00).
Five times World Cup winners, twice runners-up and reigning champions, Brazil are the team to beat. But Croatia present stiff competition in their opening game in Group F. Zlatko Kranjcar 's team were semi-finalists in 1998 and beat Sweden twice in qualifying. Croatia also held Brazil to a 1-1 draw in a friendly last August. That said, Carlos Alberto Parreira 's men have only been beaten twice in 18 games and Barcelona's mercurial striker, Ronaldinho, can win a match in an instant - as England found to their cost in 2002. Introduced by Gary Lineker , with Alan Hansen ,
Ian Wright and Leonardo, and commentary from John Motson and Mark Lawrenson. Highlights of today's games are at 11.45pm. (HD)

4/4. A Picture of the Painter Howard Hodgkin
Howard Hodgkin is one of Britain's most successful living painters. His works are bold, colourful, and some would say beautiful. But is "beautiful" a dirty word these days? With a major retrospective exhibition coming up at Tate Britain, Hodgkin travels with Alan Yentob to India, a country which has been described as his emotional lifeline. A new series is scheduled for the autumn.

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.
