Wheelbase: Five Million Gallons a Month

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.
Maxwell Boyd covers the world of motoring.

Life for most people in Zambia depends on the tankers and trucks which bring in petrol and oil from Dar-es-Salaam on the Indian Ocean over a thousand miles of tough tropical track. Five million gallons must arrive every month to keep cars and industry running. One lorry in every ten never gets through to Zambia's copper belt because of crashes or driver fatigue.
A Wheelbase profile of the men and machines making big money on the long road the Africans call 'the hell run'.

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.
