Henry Royce, mechanic

Synopsis

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.
The story of the man who founded Rolls-Royce with the voices of those who remember him and the cars and aeroplanes he left behind him.
Born the youngest son of an impoverished miller, he died in 1933, leaving a fortune and the blueprints for the engine that helped save this country in the Battle of Britain.
As much as possible of this film was made in the places where Sir Henry worked and with the cars, engines, and aeroplanes he made. It's a memorial to a very ordinary, and yet very great man. with ANTHONY BROWN as Sir Henry Narrator ALEXANDER JOHN Editor

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.
