: WHEELBASE

Gordon Wilkins covers the world of Grand Prix Racing
NOBODY LOVES A LOSER
Graham Hill and Jackie Stewart were favourites to win the 1968 drivers' world championship, which was decided last Sunday at the Grand Prix of Mexico. This was the last race of a Grand Prix season which has seen the loss in crashes of Jim Clarke and Joe Schlesser , and the popularity among constructors of the Ford V8 formula I engine.
What accounts for the growing public appeal of motor racing? Is it the men or the machines which draw the crowd?

: WORLD CINEMA

LUCHINO VISCONTI 'S
Bellissima
An Italian film with English sub-titles starring
ANNA MAGNANI
WALTER CHIARI
Screenplay by SUSO CECCHI D'EMICO,
FRANCESCO Rosi , and LUCHINO VISCONTI based on a story by CESARE ZAVATTINI
Directed by Luchino Visconti Produced by Salvo d'Angelo
An ambitious mother has to sacrifice everything to make her seven-year-old daughter a film star.
This was one of Visconti's first films to be shown commercially in Britain. BBC-tv viewers have seen a number of his later works, most recently Senso, and Rocco and his Brothers. The film, however, is basically a vehicle for Anna Magnani who is in her element as the vociferous, energetic, working-class housewife whose passions are aroused by ambition and injustice.

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.
