Wheelbase: Fifty Years of the Bentley


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.
GORDON WILKINS covers the world of motoring
This is the golden jubilee year of the Bentley. First built as a three-litre in 1919, the car soon dominated the racing scene at Brook-lands and Le Mans, and won a reputation for speed and strength which survives to this day. What accounts for the Bentley's special hold on its admirers? Has its importance been over-rated? Why did the Bentley company crash in the 1930s? s. c. H. DAVIS recalls what it was like to drive a Bentley to victory. The President of the Bentley Drivers' Club, STANLEY SEDGWICK , speaks for the Bentley owner today; and, from his home at Shamley Green in Surrey, w. o. BENTLEY looks back over the stormy history of the car which bears his name.

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.
