Whicker's World: Living with Waltzing Matilda


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 third of ten films in Australia's bicentennial year presented by Alan Whicker. No one exemplifies the buccaneering, entrepreneurial spirit of Western Australia more than Alan Bond, who left Hammersmith as a 13-year-old and is now a megamillionaire and Australian folk hero, the only man to wrest the America's Cup from the Americans. Alister Norwood, son of a Belfast carpenter, is to jeans what Bond is to beer, and Peter Briggs from Streatham, believes that someone who's worth five or ten million 'hasn't really made it'. Briggs owns 150 vintage cars, and offers Alan Whicker a chance to drive in York's annual 'Flying Fifty' endurance trial.

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.
