: Wheelbase: One Jump Ahead

Gordon Wilkins covers the world of motoring.

Do motor manufacturers spend enough on research? Are profits ploughed back into making better cars? How does a motor firm keep one jump ahead in the race to be first on the market with a new model? Wheelbase investigates at Fords' new £10 million Research and Engineering Centre at Dunton in Essex, opened yesterday by the Prime Minister, where a top-secret team of six thousand people are designing and testing the cars of 1970 today.

Producer: Brian Robins

: A Welsh Countryman

A film about Dafydd Edwardes of Penuwch.

Penuwch is a tiny village in the uplands of Cardiganshire, its inhabitants firmly rooted in Welshness. Dafydd Edwardes, septuagenarian with the style of an aristocrat, who farms in the village, is conscious and proud of this Welshness, so much so that even the animals on his farm have to be of Welsh stock.

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.
