Gordon Wilkins covers the Paris Motor Show.

In the face of speed limits at home, British manufacturers announce two new sports cars capable of over 100 m.p.h., there are faster versions of two familiar family saloons, and from the mountains of Sardinia Maxwell Boyd sends a road test report on the fast new front-wheel drive Simea 1100.

: Inside Australia: Man of Two Worlds

A series in which Australians look at themselves and their rapidly changing continent.

Pino and Livia Bosi consciously turned their backs on Italy and Europe. They call themselves Australian, yet stubbornly teach their children Italian. They live in a Sydney flat which could as easily be in suburban Rome or Naples. They recognise the paradox and would smile at it: they have chosen a new world yet still belong to the old.

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.
