A look back over 40 years of Europe's national and international football.
French teams competing in Europe have frequently played inventive football but lacked a pragmatic edge, often sacrificing success in favour of a glorious playing style. Reims contested two of the first four European Cup finals, but there was to be no success in any competition until 1984.
In Belgium, Anderlecht have a proud European record, and in 1980 an excellent national side stretched the West Germans to the limit in the final of the European Nations Cup.
Featuring interviews with Michel Platini , Michel Hidalgo , Jean Tigana , Paul van Himst, Raymond Kopa and Guy Thys.

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.
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.
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.
