: Wheelbase: Monte Mechanic

Gordon Wilkins covers the world of motoring with Judith Jackson.
What's it like to be a rally mechanic on a top international event? On his 33rd birthday Mick Jones set out from his home in Essex to service Roger Clark's Ford Escort through the five days and nights of this year's Monte Carlo rally.
This is the story of what happened to him, the car, and the top rallyman who drove it over 2,500 miles of ice and snow to the sunshine of the French Riviera.

: Four Great Painters

Head Over Heels
Marc Chagall
Master of Modern Art
Over 80, Chagall is almost as old as the Eiffel Tower. His work is a landmark in the development of modern art, yet it is entirely individual. This winter there are three major exhibitions of his work in Paris.
In this film he is shown working in his studio at St Paul de Vence, near Nice. He talks about his past, present, and future, surrounded by several million pounds' worth of paintings from his private collection. The film covers the entire range of his art, from his youth in Russia to his spiritual visions of today. It tells the story of a man who has never lost his unique talent for expressing the feelings of the heart in images of great poetic power. Narrator ROBERT CUSHMAN
Film cameraman ERIC DEEMING Film editor PETER WEST

: Italian Cinema

Roberto Rossellini's Viva l'ltalia
A series of feature films reflecting some of the finest work of many of Italy's most famous and talented directors and artists
This week's programme stars Renzo Ricci , Paolo Stoppa Franco Interlenghi Giovanna Ralli
Garibaldi saves Sicily from Bourbon oppression and gradually unites divided Italy, finally surrendering his power to Victor Emmanuel II, King of Sardinia and Piedmont.
Produced to celebrate 100 years of Italian unity, this epic story set in 1861 has the same lightness of touch that Rossellini brought to his recent historical film Louis XIV.
Screenplay by SERGIO AMIDEI
ANTONELLO THOMBADORI , DIEGO FABBRI

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.
