Gordon Wilkins covers the Geneva Motor Show with Bernard Cahier and Judith Jackson
THE CAR FOR THE ALPS
The Swiss buy cars for mountain motoring and all this week at the Geneva Motor Show every manufacturer in Europe has been trying to sell them a new model. Do the gradients of the Alps influence their choice of gear ratios and steering? Will the price of petrol-a shilling a gallon cheaper than in most places on the Continent-persuade drivers in Switzerland to buy big-engined cars with plenty of uphill power in 1969?

: CIVILISATION

A personal view by Kenneth Clark
*
4: MAN-THE MEASURE OF ALL THINGS
' The architect Leon Battista
Alberti addressed man in these words: "To you is given a body more graceful than other animals, to you power of apt and various movements, to you most sharp and delicate senses, to you wit, reason, memory like an immortal god." '
The early Renaissance saw Alberti and the other men of his time emerge as confident individuals, taking delight in art and ideas. Sir Kenneth Clark visits Florence, where European thought was first given a new impetus by the re-discovery of the classical past, and continues his journey to the palaces of Urbino and Mantua, centres of Renaissance civilisation.
Federigo Montefeltro was not only a powerful general and a wise ruler who valued humanity in government, but also a man of wide learning. Sir Kenneth considers his palace on its hilltop at Urbino to be one of the most beautiful pieces of architecture in the world. The Duke's sympathetic patronage drew artists of every kind to his court, among them Piero della Francesca, and Raphael and Bramante received their early training there.

A series of personal choices of prose and poetry
Guest reader:
Barbara Jeff or Given before an invited audience at the Richmond Theatre, Surrey Producer, JOHN FURNESS
Postponed from February 21
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 A. J. Ayer , Alan Bennett , Lord MacLeod, and Alistair Cooke.

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.
