This film, made by the Shell Film Unit, is a complete record of the Society of British Aircraft Constructors' Show held at the Royal Aircraft Establishment's airfield at Farnborough in Hampshire, at the beginning of September 1949. Besides showing almost all the air-craft on the ground and flying overhead the film also contains a large number of shots of the aircraft off the ground, taken from accompanying machines.
Results of today's poll will be given as they come in, illustrated by maps and diagrams.

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.
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.
