Wheelbase: The Flying Finns

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.
Gordon Wilkins covers the world of motoring.

The Rally of 1,000 Lakes ended last Sunday in Finland, a country which produces some of the best rally drivers in the world. What explains the success of rally winners like Aaltonen and Makinen? Why are the forests and lakes of Finland an outstanding proving ground for competitors and cars?
Stuart Turner, the competition manager who first paired Finnish drivers with English navigators in the world-beating B.M.C. Mini-Cooper team, looks at some of the answers along the 1,000-mile route of this international rally which the Finns have made their own.

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.
