: Wheelbase: Weekend at Villars

Gordon Wilkins covers the world of motor sport with Bernard Cahier and Judith Jackson.
Just over a month before the first Grand Prix of the season in South Africa, many of the world's top racing drivers meet at the Swiss ski resort of Villars to enjoy a weekend of winter sport and discuss the prospects for motor racing in the year ahead.
Are circuits safe? Is four-wheel-drive a failure? Are aerofoils out? Is prize money poor?
Denny Hulme, Jackie Ickx, Bruce Maclaren, and Jackie Stewart take time off to ski, skate, or toboggan, and look at leisure for answers to the big questions facing motor sport in 1970.

: Four Great Painters

Constable Observed
The story of an English genius John Constable (1776-1837) Script by RONALD BLYTHE
' Remember the great were not made for me, nor I for the great. My limited and abstracted art is to be found under every hedge, and in every lane, and therefore nobody thinks it worth picking up. Painting with me is another word for feeling, and I associate my careless boyhood with all that lies on the' banks of the Stour.' This film, which explores the poetic beauty of the Constable country and above all the great paintings that became ' part of the landscape of every English mind,' also describes how this peaceful scene was a battlefield for an artist who by nature was deeply conservative.
As an artist he developed late and matured slowly. His big canvasses were a labour and subject to prolonged preparation and revision. Even so the fame he sought was long delayed. Landscape was not considered a worthy subject for the highest forms of art. His election to the Royal Academy came only at the fourth time. He was told that he had been lucky to get in. Narrated by ALVAR LIDELL

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.
