: Lord COTTENHAM, Why have motor accidents ? '

MOTOR traffic has become a really serious problem nowadays, and everyone who drives a car knows how much danger is caused bv motorists who are inexperienced, reckless, or lacking in consideration. In his talk tonight the Earl of Cottenham will make a strong plea for safe driving, for the sake of motorists themselves. He has a special claim to speak on this subject, as he is Chairman of the Executive Committee of the Order of the Road, an organisation formed over a year ago to band together experienced drivers who are prepared to promise that their first object shall always be consideration for their fellow motorists and all other users of the road, The address of the Order is Maxwell House, Arundel Street, W.C.2.

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.
