: Inside Story

Traffic Jam
On a Saturday morning in August, traffic on a long section of the Ml has come to a standstill. A minor collision in roadworks near
Luton has had a huge knock-on effect. Within an hour there are five more pile-ups and a 13-mile tailback. Tempers and radiators are at boiling point. Every day hundreds of thousands of caravans, lorries and day-trippers travel this stretch oftheMl.Britain'sbusiest motorway, and they have to negotiate the crashes and the contraflows.
Inside Story steps smartly through the barrier of cones to find out who is responsible for the chaos on Britain's roads, and asks, on behalf of every motorist: "Why does no one seem to be working in the coned-off lane?"
Producer Peter Dale was also responsible for the acclaimed Inside Story on a day in the life of BR's Network SouthEast, Old, DirtyandLate, screened in May. Executive producer Steve Hewlett

Introduced by Desmond Lynam.
Championship Boxing
Tonight offers a chance to Lewisham's unbeaten
European and Commonwealth heavyweight champion Henry Akinwande to stake his claim for a shot at the world title.
After 21 fights Akinwande has won 20 times and conceded just one draw, and after winning the European title in May, when he out-pointed Germany's Axel Schulz in Berlin, he is on the verge of the big time. But first he must get past the Russian Alexander Miroshnichenko at the Elephant and Castle. Commentary by Harry Carpenter.
A preview of England's crucial World Cup qualifier in Holland next week, which is likely to decide whether or not they reach the finals in the United
States next year. Also a look ahead to Wales's important match with Cyprus in Cardiff. Plus a review of the weekend's action in the Premiership and all the top sports news of the evening.

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.
