: Record Breaking: Sir Malcolm Campbell

The 'Blue Bird' and a Film of the Utah Record

Sir Malcolm Campbell can claim to have travelled on land faster than any other man. In 1935 he drove 'Blue Bird' at a speed of 301 miles an hour, the world's record, which still stands. At the beginning of this broadcast viewers will see this record-breaking car, and Sir Malcolm Campbell, in an interview with Cecil Lewis, will describe some of its unusual features. He will end the broadcast by giving a commentary on films of his own record-breaking achievements, including his last success with 'Blue Bird' at Bonneville Flats in Utah.

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.
