: Driver of the Year

Grand Final
Introduced by Noel Edmonds and Peter Purves
Two farmers, a ship's plater, a civil servant, a transport manager, two engineers, a lorry driver, a businessman and a garage owner make up the ten amateur drivers who are competing for the title of BBC Television's Driver of the Year and the trophy that goes with it. These finalists have come to Cadwell Park from the four corners of the United Kingdom to take part. Facing them are six events building up to a motor race, where, for the first time, they meet each other in open competition. It proves to be a decisive and fitting finale to a closely-fought contest.

: The Risk Business Special

Everything to Play For
We spend about a million pounds a day on toys and, with only four shopping days to Christmas, the industry will soon know what sort of year it has been.
Throughout the year, reporters Michael Rodd and Judith Hann have listened in on boardrooms, met designers and talked with workers in Britain's toy companies. Tonight, they reveal the secrets which mean success or failure, not only this Christmas but in the years to come: because, as every manufacturer knows, success comes to him who takes the . risks and gets it right.

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.
