: F.A. Cup Final: Arsenal v. Newcastle United

Commentary by Raymond Glendenning and Alan Clarke on the second half of the match From the Empire Stadium, Wembley There are several records involved in this match. Will Newcastle United beat the sixty-one-year-old record of Blackburn Rovers and win the Cup for the second year running? Will Arsenal be the first club to notch four wins at Wembley?
Both teams have obviously much to play for, and Arsenal will be out to avenge the defeat they suffered in 1932, when the Tynesiders beat them at Wembley by two goals to one.

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.
