Gordon Wilkins reports on the London Motor Show direct from Earls Court, with Maxwell Boyd, Michael Frostick and Judith Jackson.
Want a new car? Visit the Motor Show with Wheelbase for the latest news on prices, performances, and delivery dates. Nearly half-a-million people went to the show last October. This year there are 15 new cars not seen at Earls Court before, 62 different makes, and salesmen from a dozen countries keen to attract the British buyer. Many family cars now cost Â£50 more than they did at the beginning of 1970, and foreign models are coming into the showrooms fast. But for most motorists Earls Court is still the show of the year.

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.
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.
