Waterline: From Egypt Point to Haldon Pier


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.
David Fairhall, Penny Bowles and Jack Knights cover the 1967 Off-shore Powerboat Race.

"It's like riding a runaway bull bare-back". That is how one competitor described the International Powerboat Race from the Isle of Wight to Torquay. What attracts so many rich sportsmen to this 200-mile test of physical endurance? Are five hours of battering in big waves and the risk of serious injury worth the winner's prize of £1,000? Does this kind of race experience produce better powerboats for the family buyer? For the inside story of last Saturday's high-powered struggle off the south coast, join test pilot Peter Twiss at the helm of BBC-2's own entry, the Fairey Huntress Waterline.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
