    Tonight on Midlands Today - if you've been commuting by train today, the chances are you had to stand. 

    Rail passengers in Birmingham are more likely to have to stand on a peak-time train, than in any other major city outside London.

    New Department for Transport data for England and Wales shows one in five passengers struggle to find a seat during the morning and evening rush hours. 

    I've been looking at the figures and what we can conclude from them - see more on BBC One from 18:30.

  10. 'Lost' World Cup final radio tape: Early broadcast of much-loved TV voice

    A private, amateur recording of the BBC's radio commentary on England's 1966 World Cup final win features Brian Moore.

    He went on to become one of TV's best known football voices.

    The BBC has no archive copy of the full radio commentary, but a former pupil of Worcester New College for the Blind recorded the whole game. He has kept his tape for 50 years and has now shared it with us.

    Brian Moore is commentating during Geoff Hurst's infamous goal about which there is endless debate - did the ball cross the line?

    Quote Message: Styles with a long ball... Ball will chase for all he's worth... can Hurst get a shot in... he's hit the bar... [the referee's] not given it... I though that hit the bar and went in... it's given, England are in the lead." from Brian Moore Commentator, 1966
