Vladikavkaz, though, are the runaway leaders as the Russian league season draws to its climax. Liverpool will need to show their best form to secure the sort of result they need in advance of the second leg, which will take place back at Anfield in two weeks'time............................

: Sound Stories

Second in a seven-part series examining the powerand appeal of music and music-makingfor ordinary people throughout Britain. The Boat Band
Greg Stephens turned to Cajun music afterthe realisation that the public had little time for English traditional music, which, he says, has failed to move with the times and adapt to today's tastes. Togetherwith the Cheshire-based
Boat Band that he leads, Greg takes an annual sailboat trip to the Western Isles of Scotland.
In the remote harbour pubs, the group blends a mixture of Cajun and Creole music with a flavour of the Caribbean to produce their own unique sound. Thrown into the melting pot of influences is their summer travelling companion, JC Gallow , Deputy Sheriff of Momou County, Louisiana, who plays the rub board and sings.

: Nautilus: To War in Iron Coffins

First in a five-part series about the submarine.
Recalling the dangers posed by life in the early submersibles.
See today's choices.

9.30pm BBC2
Michael Gambon narrates this impressive five-part history of the submarine - or iron coffins as they were once called.
The opening programme gives a sailors view of submarine life during the First World War combining dramatic reconstructions (based on personal accounts) with archive footage (some previously classified material). But it is not all heroics and camerarderie, the most graphic descriptions are of the grim conditions: the smells of petrol mingling with body odour, the cold (it took 10 minutes to chip the ice off their coats after a watch in the Baltic), and, of course, the constant fear.


Narrator: Michael Gambon
Director: Ian Potts

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.
