World Cup Special
England's footballers face their toughest task for years in Rome on Wednesday, when they play Italy - a match that could well decide which country qualifies for the World Cup finals in Argentina in 1978. Can Don Revie's team survive the pressures of playing the Italians in front of their own fiercely partisan supporters? To try and find the answer, PETER LORENZO talks to some of the former star British footballers who have played in the Italian League, with BRYON BUTLER reporting on England's build-up to the big match. Plus a look ahead to two other vital World Cup matches on Wednesday - Scotland against Wales at Hampden Park, and France v the Republic of Ireland in Paris.

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.
