Waterline: Power, Sail and Safety

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.
Cliff Michelmore introduces the last of three programmes.

Dick Tracey sends an all-action report from Paris on a British bid to win the Seine six-hour power boat race, fastest event of its kind in the world.
On a winter's day Bob Fisher goes dinghy racing off the South Coast to find out what attracts so many men - and women - to this freezing weekend sport.
And at the London Corinthian Sailing Club, yachtsmen reply to the crew of a Cornish lifeboat who claim they have to put to sea too often to rescue reckless amateur sailors.

Waterline: Power, Sail and Safety

BBC Two England, 20 March 1973 20.05






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.
