Cliff Michelmore covers the motoring news of the week, with MICHAEL-FROSTJCK and BARRIE GILL.
Tonight the Wheelbase/Kleber Scholarship is awarded in London to the most promising young British rally driver of 1973. The prize includes a works-prepared Ford Escort RS 1600, £5,000 cash and £500 in spares, and is designed to help the winner compete in rallies at home and abroad throughout 1974.
The programme also asks if there is an answer to motorway fog? Better lighting, radar, or a total ban on motorway driving when visibility is bad?

: Charles Laughton in St Martin's Lane

also starring
Vivien Leigh , Rex Harrison
Charles Saggers , a Cockney busker, falls for a beautiful young waif, but loses her when she is taken up by socialites and turned into a West End star.
In a career lasting over 30 years, Charles Laughton created an astonishing gallery of famous film characterisations, from Henry VIII to Captain Bligh. In tonight's film, produced by his own company in 1938, he gives one of his most moving performances as the busker who loses the girl he loves to the bright lights inside the theatre and returns to find his own happiness with his old friends in the theatre queue.

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 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 find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

This is a historical record of both 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.
