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 1987 Formula One World Championship Detroit Grand Prix
This bumpy street circuit in the 'auto capital of the world' puts man and machine under severe pressure.
There have been five races held here, won by five different drivers and five different cars. Winner last year was AYRTON SENNA who swept to victory three weeks ago at Monaco, another street circuit.
If the 'active suspension' on his Lotus works well again he will have an enormous advantage on the rough road surface; if not watch out for NIGEL MANSELL , who loves this kind of circuit and led so convincingly at Monaco until his turbo failed. Commentators MURRAY WALKER
TV presentation: CBS. USA
Producer CHARLES BALCHIN (French Grand Prix: 5 July)

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.
