Hard, strong, but brittle
High-temperature technology has forced the materials scientist to search for new materials. But the oldest man-made materials, ceramics, are almost tailor-made for the job...
DR FREDDIE CLARKE , Head of the Ceramics Centre, Harwell, shows how their one big limitation - brittleness - is now being overcome.

: Wheelbase: March on the Grid

Gordon Wilkins covers the world of motor sport with Michael Frostick.
When the 1970 Grand Prix season starts in South Africa next week, world champion Jackie Stewart will be driving the new car called the March. It has the Ford Cosworth V8 engine which won him the championship last year. But everything else about the car is the work of a new British design and engineering team.
Why is the world champion taking a chance with this unproved car? What opposition from Ferrari, Lotus, McLaren, or Matra will this new British team have to face in their first Formula One race at Kyalami on 7 March? Wheelbase goes to Bicester to meet the men behind the new March and to report on Jackie Stewart's test drive at Silverstone.

: Italian Cinema Ermanno Olmi's I Fidanzati

(The Engagement)
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 Carlo Cabrini Anna Canzi
A failing romance is given a new lease of life when the couple are unexpectedly separated for 18 months.
This second film in Ermanno Olmi 's trilogy of everyday life is similar in technique to 11 Posta in its creative use of actuality. The third film in this trio A Certain Day is now on commercial release.
Olmi started as a documentary director and the BBC premiered his feature-length documentary Time Stood Still six years ago. His documentary style makes the work of the Italian neo-realist school of directors seem operatic. He abhors opticals, dialogue, and dissolves, and depends instead on his actors and his images.
Written and directed by ERMANNO OLMI Produced by GOFFREDO LOMBARDO

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.
