When haute couture and new technology collide the end product is, apparently, cyberstreet fashion. This final programme in the series looks into the future to examine what the best-dressed 21st-century whizz-kids will be wearing. Top designers, including Edina Ronay and Jeff Banks , produced a wardrobe of futuristic fashions which were modelled and filmed at a special catwalk show. The garments are designed to allow the gadgetry of this technological age to be worn as fashion accessories. Edina Ronay says of her creation: "It will hold everything the beautiful space chick will need, from communications to her make-up."

: World Cup Grandstand

Italy v Norway
An evening of great importance to Ireland, as their group E rivals
Italy and Norway meet in this match coming live from the Giants Stadium, New York. Norway's emergence as a World Cup force was one of the big surprises of the qualifying competition - as England found to their cost. The Norwegians drew 1-1 at Wembley and then beat England 2-0 in Oslo in what was the lowest point in Graham Taylor 's management era.
Their defensive organisation was again in evidence when they battled out a goalless draw in a warm-up match against
England at Wembley last month. Despite their part in England's elimination, Norway's progress will be keenly followed with many of their squad, including Erik Thorstvedt (Spurs), Henning Berg (Blackburn),
Erland Johnsen (Chelsea) and Jan-Age Fjortoft (Swindon), playing in the Premiership last season.
The Italians will provide
Norway, who have not qualified for the finals since 1938, with a stern examination. The Italians were World champions in 1934, 1938 and 1982 and come to the United States bracketed with Brazil and Germany as the nations most likely to succeed.
Introduced by Bob Wilson with David O'Leary and Gary Lineker , plus an off-beat look at the tournament so far with Fantasy FootbaM's Frank Skinner and David Baddiel.

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.
