: WHEELBASE

Gordon Wilkins covers the world of motoring
TOO OLD AT THREE?
When the Ministry of Transport compulsory test for vehicle safety was introduced in 1960 it was for cars ten years old and over. Today the fifteen-shilling examination covers cars only three years old. Of eight million cars inspected, more than two million have failed the test the first time mainly because of faulty brakes or steering.
But has the test made the roads safer? Does the three-year limit lead motorists to replace their old car too soon? Or is it just a profitable gimmick for garages?

GERARD PHILIPE
FRANÇOISE ROSAY

An elderly and wealthy woman gambles away a fortune while her family and their debtors look on despairingly. Dostoevsky's novel received another production on BBC-2 earlier this year, and it is interesting to compare that version with this film which was made by the French director Claude Autant-Lara . Gerard Philipe , who plays a leading role, previously worked with Autant-Lara on Le Diable au Corps.

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.
