: Wheelbase: 'See You in Monte'

Gordon Wilkins covers the motoring story of the week.

What makes the Monte Carlo Rally the most famous event of its kind in the world? What keeps a driver at the wheel for a week on a 200-1 chance of winning the £1,000 first Prize from Prince Rainier and Princess Grace of Monaco? Why have the British been the Rally's strongest supporters ever since it began fifty-seven years ago?
Maxwell Boyd, Robin Richards, Stuart Turner, and Tom Wisdom look for the answer among the top crews who survive six days and nights of snow and ice to reach the sunshine of the French Riviera.

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.
