Wheelbase covers the world of motoring

Tonight Barrie Gill reviews the 1971 motor racing scene. Meet the champions Graham Hill, Denny Hulme, Jackie Stewart, and John Surtees and see them in action against the all-conquering Ferraris of Italy in the South African Grand Prix and the Race of the Champions at Brands Hatch.

Gordon Wilkins reports on the car of the week, the new V-12 Jaguar E-type and Judith Jackson drives it on the long straight roads of northern France.
On the opening night of the New York motor show Maxwell Boyd looks at America's answer to the small car invasion from Europe and sums up the dollar prospects for the new £10,000 Rolls-Royce convertible in the United States.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
