: WHEELBASE

Gordon Wilkins and Judith Jackson cover the world of motoring
WHAT PRICE INSURANCE?
The cost of insurance premiums has gone up faster than almost any other motoring expense, and more than a dozen firms offering cut-price policies have collapsed.
Do motorists, in fact, pay more than they need for cover? Can damaged cars be repaired more cheaply? Should premiums be based on age or occupation instead of on horsepower?

STERLING EAST OF SUEZ
1: Singapore-the economics of withdrawal
When British troops finally leave Singapore at the end of 1971 nearly 30,000 Singaporeans will be looking for a job. Today unemployment is already a problem for the island and the Prime Minister, Lee Kwan Yew , is struggling to replace British military spending, which contributes a quarter of his total budget.
Will the Japanese take over when Britain leaves, or will there still be a future for sterling east of Suez?

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.
