: MOTORING AND THE MOTORIST

Crossroads
Members of the Women's Institute from Denman College and from local branches question
JOHN GOTT Chief Constable of Northampton and County
DENISE MCCANN Chairman and Managing Director of the British School of Motoring
ANNE HALL ex-rally driver and now Driving School instructress
MICHAEL KEMP Motoring Correspondent of the Daily Sketch
Chairman, BILL HARTLEY
Recorded In the Guild Hall, Abingdon
Produced by James Pestridge followed by the latest news of roads and traffic

Motoring and the Motorist tries to cater for the ' average ' motorist, to keep him informed of technical, legal, and other such developments in the world of motoring. The audiences number up to a million and the postbags show their keen interest. Today's ' Crossroads ' audience from Women's Institutes might also be taken to reflect the fact that about half the listeners are women motorists; they take their driving seriously and are anxious to find out all they can about it.
MOTORING AND THE MOTORIST 500th Edition
This weekly programme for motorists began in the Midland Home Service in 1953. Four years later it began to be broadcast nationally, and at the rate of 50 programmes a year it has now clocked up its 500.
The original idea was Bill Hartley's, and he has been editor and introducer of the programme ever since. Jim Pestridge has been producing the programme since 1961, but these two first came together just twenty-one years ago with a Midland programme called How's Your Car? Radio Times motoring supplements are thus in a long tradition of collaboration in broadcasting.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
