: RUN FOR YOUR LIFE

A pace-setting adventure series starring a man with no ties and no time to spare
This week:
Keep My Share of the World
Paul goes to North Africa to see his old friend Pete Gaffney testing a racing car built by a rich Greek industrialist, and soon finds himself at the wheel when a disagreement puts Gaffney out of the running. The world speed record is of prime importance to the Greek, but so is his attachment to a beautiful woman whom he has known since childhood and her devotion lacks constancy when Paul is around. Blackmail and bribery are only two of the ingredients in the final settlement.

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.
