'THEY HAD BEEN WARNED'

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.
Kenneth Adam
We all know the man who is popular at the golf club, a good fellow at the office, considerate to those under him, proud of his wife, kind to his children-the type of man you would imagine would never take risks. Yet go for a drive with him and you may find to your surprise and concern that he always insists on taking right-handed corners on the right of the road. ' Saves time, nothing there ', he argues-and one day, of course, there is something there. Two cars meet in a head-on crash.
In a new series of five-minute talks Kenneth Adam is to give six separate imaginary biographies similar to the above. He will show how lives are lost through taking risks and using the roads without care or consideration or common sense, not alone by motorists, but by cyclists and pedestrians as well.

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.
