: WHEELBASE

Gordon Wilkins covers the world of motoring with Judith Jackson
MAKE WAR ON WINTER
The first snow of the winter often brings chaos to roads in Britain. Cars and lorries skid to a stop; buses stay in the garage. The cost to the country in absence from work and undelivered goods can be counted in millions of pounds.
Whose fault is this? Weather men with inaccurate forecasts? Local authorities with too few snow ploughs? Or motorists using the wrong tyres and the wrong kind of driving?
Wheelbase looks for some answers at the 1969 Winter Conference at Berchtesgaden in the Bavarian Alps, where the world's leading experts on snow-clearing have been meeting to demonstrate how the right methods and machines can make war on winter and keep the traffic moving.

: AN EVENING WITH....

Sir Michael Redgrave
A series of personal choices of prose and poetry Guest reader-
BARBARA JEFFORD
Given before an invited audience at the Richmond Theatre, Surrey
Producer, JOHN FURNESS
Sir Michael's choices include Alexander Woollcott 's account of Mrs. Patrick Campbell's first night in The Second Mrs. Tanqueray. Sir Michael contributes his own prologue, and also a poem to celebrate his birth written by his actor-father.
Sir Michael's choices can be described as popular in the best sense of the word. Authors are Coleridge, Robert Graves , T. S. Eliot , Hans Andersen , Katherine Mansfield , Wordsworth, Belloc, and Kipling.
Incidentally this is the only programme in the series where our stars break into song, which they do in the setting of an anonymous poem collected by W. H. Auden.
A further series of Evenings will be televised shortly, with Lady Asquith, A. J. Ayer , Alan Bennett , Lord MacLeod, and Alistair Cooke.

: THE FRENCH CINEMA

Presenting a series of feature films reflecting some of the finest work of France's most famous and talented directors and artists
Lift to the Scaffold
Ascenseur pour l'échafaud starring
JEANNE MOREAU
MAURICE RONET with Lino Ventura
Photography by HENRI DECAE
Music by MILES DAVIS
Screenplay by ROGER NIMIER and Louis MALLE
Based on the novel by NOEL CALE
Produced by Irenee Leriche
Directed by Louis Malle
A man falls in love with a married woman, and elimination of the husband is his first concern-he dreams of the perfect murder.
This stylish thriller which was awarded the Louis Delluc Prize in 1957 was Louis Malle's first feature; he has subsequently worked with Jeanne Moreau on three other films, Les Amants, Le Feu Follet, and Viva Maria ! Tonight's film has a neat, crisp plot of which Agatha Christie might have been proud and the denouement contains a nicely ironic turn.

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.
