Grand Prix


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
From the Paul Ricard circuit at Le Castellet in Provence.
The World Championship came alive two weeks ago in Mexico City when Alain Prost took his Ferrari to victory and Nigel Mansell beat Gerhard Berger into second place by only half a second. Will Ferrari capitalise on its new-found reliability at the fast Paul Ricard circuit this weekend and pose a threat to the McLaren of Ayrton Senna? With commentary by Murray Walker and James Hunt.

French Grand Prix
British driver Derek Warwick writes: 'Jean Alesi took the Formula 1 world by surprise when he finished last year's French Grand Prix in fourth place; already a star in Formula 3000, it was the first time he had ever competed in a Formula 1 race. In the intervening months the young Frenchman has grown from strength to strength and, undaunted by his more experienced rivals, has established himself as the most exciting young driver the sport has seen since the emergence of the Brazilian Ayrton Senna in the mid-1980s.'

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.
