: Wheelbase: Left-Hand Drive

Gordon Wilkins covers the world of motoring.

Foreign cars continue to sell well in this country despite high import charges. Do they offer the motorist more for his money than their British rivals, or is foreign-car ownership simply a fashion or a fad?
An on-the-spot enquiry from Silverstone where the latest cars of France, Germany, Italy, and the United States were tested on the circuit yesterday by British motoring correspondents.

: More Than Meets the Eye: 4: World Television

A series which takes a critical look at the methods and effects of mass communication.

Within two years we can expect twenty-four-hour world-wide television. But what shall we see on it? The technical advance has been astonishingly rapid. But the programmes, apart from news and sport, have been widely criticised. What can we look for from satellite television - a boon, or world-wide boredom?

Kenneth Robinson introduces this weekly programme on the expanding world of leisure.

For Sale-Paradise?
For many people, paradise is a plot of land, a stretch of sand, eternal sun, and the sea-all of which can be found in the islands of the Bahamas. According to some advertisements in the British Press you can buy a plot in the Bahamas for as little as £5 down and £5 a month without interest charges, or £350 cash down. What do you get for your money? Jeremy James investigates.
The Vicar Bought A Jet Liner
One evening fifteen years ago a Danish vicar had to pay for two dinners in Spain because he had muddled his bookings. He ate them both. Today he is head of Scandinavia's biggest travel business and has his own airline. In spite of opposition from business competitors and the doubts of his own Church, he sells some of the cheapest holidays in Europe. And he still preaches to his parish every Sunday.

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.

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.
