From A to B: Tales of Modern Motoring


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.
"As far as my social life is concerned, the Metro is a no-go area. I think
I'd look so much better sat in an XR2," says one young driver wistfully in the first programme of Nicholas Barker 's sequel to Signs of the Times. Barker has applied the same style to this chronicle of British motorists that he used with his tongue-in-cheek series on perceptions of taste in the British home. The result is five films featuring the cars, the thoughts, the dreams and the anxieties of 70 drivers.
This first programme, It Gets
You Out of the House, gives seven youngdrivers the chance to express their feelings about their first car.

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.
