The Team - a Season with McLaren


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.
In the fiercely competitive world of Formula 1 there has to be mutual respect between driver and mechanics. "They are the ones that in the end put this thing together, so they have the ability to create and innovate.... they are all racers," says Ayrton Senna of his mechanics.
The third programme of the series chartinga season in the Grand Prix life of the McLaren motor racing team examines this pit lane and garage relationship. " I like to work with a guy that will race to come first, whether he's got a good car or a mediocre car," is mechanic Dave Crabtree 's view of Senna.
The programme shows how the team rebuilt Senna's car in an astonishing two hours for him to triumph in Monaco and their disappointment in France, despite having both cars finish in the points.

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.
