: WHEELBASE

Stuart Turner covers the world of motoring
FIRST WITH THE NEWS
In Fleet Street, evening-paper delivery vans often cover 40,000 miles a year. In Australia, newspaper vans on a 500-mile night run have half-a-million miles on the clock. Few people depend on the motor vehicle as heavily as the Press. A breakdown can cost thousands in money and circulation. What vehicles do newspapers choose and why?
WHEELBASE goes on the road with the Perth West Australian, which has one of the longest delivery runs in the world, and the London Evening News, which has the world's largest evening sale.

: THE FALL OF THE HOUSE OF HABSBURG 1848-1918

A View of an Age by EDWARD CRANKSHAW
In the course of 600 years one family, the Habsburgs, came to dominate the huge area of central and south-eastern Europe which included what we know today as Austria, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, and large parts of Yugoslavia, Poland, Rumania, and northern Italy.
Tonight's film tells the story of the man who strove so desperately to hold his inheritance together, the Emperor Franz Joseph. He came to the throne in 1848 at the age of eighteen, and for sixty-eight years suffered an unending series of public disasters and personal tragedies, including the suicide of his son and the assassination of his wife. On his shoulders alone rested the vast complex of an Empire approaching its end. But behind the glitter of a decadent Vienna an amazing burst of creative energy took place. Doctors, musicians-great men from all corners of the Empire converged on the capital, Vienna. In the midst of all this activity Franz Joseph tried in vain to hold at bay the forces of nationalism which eventually brought about the destruction of the old Europe.
Commentary narrated by GARY WATSON with the voices of ANNETTE SIMONE , JULIAN FOX and FRANK HENDERSON

The weekly arts magazine
THE BLACK AND BLACK MINSTRELS
Two years ago the first-and only -all-black theatre company was formed in New York: The Negro Ensemble Company. Next week they represent the United States in London's World Theatre Season. Their artistic recognition seems secure. But their commitment is to issues wider than theatrical: to politics, to social justice, to involvement. And they use as weapons jazz, humour, and blasphemy.
Tonight they talk about their work and aims, and present excerpts from their forthcoming production at the Aldwych, The Song of the Lusitanian Bogey (written for Negroes by Peter Weiss , author of the Marat/Sade), a frightening indictment of colonialism.

BUILDING FOR CHILDREN
Since the war schools have been one of the few bright spots on the British architectural scene; but for a long time designs were not tied to new methods of teaching. Now the picture has changed, and tonight Nicholas Taylor looks at some of the best new primary schools in London and asks how well they are working.

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.
