Turkey v England
European Championships: Group4
Introduced by Jimmy Hill with Trevor Brooking
On their first appearance in Izmir, England meet Turkey and kick off as European Championship Group 4 leaders with 100 per cent record from three games. England's two previous matches with Turkey produced an avalanche of goals - 13 without reply in the qualifying round of the last World Cup.
The score was 8-0 in Istanbul in November 1984 (to which captain BRYAN ROBSON contributed a hat-trick) and 5-0 (GARY LINEKER 'S turn to score three) in the return fixture at Wembley.
But BOBBY ROBSON will have warned his men that Turkey are much improved, having seen them beat East Germany 3-1 recently.

: Secret Society: 2: In Time of Crisis

Four programmes with Duncan Campbell
Q: What happens to Britain in a time of crisis or war?
A: The country will be run under emergency laws.
Q: What are the emergency laws?
A: That's for the government of the day to decide.
That is the official position; the facts are somewhat different. The emergency laws are already written, but they're not available to the public. So Parliament and the people have no chance to discuss the legislation now, before a crisis looms. And when there is an emergency, there may not be time for discussion. Duncan Campbell reveals what's in the draft Emergency Powers Bill - hospitals, roads, fuel and conscripted civilian labour would be handed over to US military forces, for instance. He asks why Britain, unlike most of its NATO allies, keeps the plans confidential when it's the British people who'll be most affected.

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.

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.
