Gordon Wilkins covers the world of motoring
THE FIRST OF NOVEMBER
From today holiday-makers can start spending their £ 50 foreign travel allowance for 1969. Drivers have an extra £ 25 for motoring abroad, but what happens when the money has gone? Is there any scope in the currency restrictions for foreign motoring beyond the £ 50 limit?
Judith and Peter Jopp take a 2-litre Triumph Vitesse Mk. 2 across the Channel to France to investigate a scheme by Normandy hoteliers to give British motorists a long weekend payable in the £ 15 sterling which travellers have a right to take on every trip.

: AN EVENING WITH....

Lord David Cecil
A new series of personal choices of prose and poetry
Guest reader, Patrick Garland
Given before an invited audience at Lamda Theatre, London
Designer, Raymond Berger
Producer, JOHN FURNESS
See page 44
Lord David Cecil 's choice reflects very much his own tastes. As a friend of Max Beerbohm 's he has naturally chosen something by him, and his fondness for Jane Austen's work is reflected in two excerpts from Northanger Abbey. There is a great deal of humour in Lord David's selection. 'I think it's the sign of a fool to take everything seriously,' he says. But there are also some deeply moving passages from the works of Wordsworth, Robert Bridges , and Sir Thomas Browne.

: SATURDAY CINEMA

The Purple Plain starring
GREGORY PECK with Win Min Than, Bernard Lee
Maurice Denham, Lyndon Brook Ram Gopal
Screenplay by ERIC AMBLER based on the novel by H. E. BATES Directed by Robert Parrish
Produced by John Bryan
In the sweltering Burmese jungle in 1945, the officers and men of an R.A.F. outpost become increasingly concerned over the behaviour of the officer who had led them on many missions against the Japanese.
Playing Forrester, the officer in question, is Gregory Peck, one of Hollywood's most durable stars. In the early days of his career he was very much a heart-throb star, but as he grew older he established himself firmly as an actor of considerable talent. In this film, he portrays a man facing a nervous breakdown, but still carrying a weight of responsibility for the lives of others. Much of the film was shot on location in Ceylon and Burma which lends a great air of authenticity.

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, and programmes to purchase.

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.
