Gordon Wilkins covers the motoring news of the week with Maxwell Boyd, Michael Frostick, and Judith Jackson.
The 70 mph speed limit is to stay on motorways. Does it really make them safer, or is bad design to blame for more accidents? Birkenhead rejects meters and adopts free disc parking. Should other cities do the same? Derelict vehicles disfigure city streets. Is the answer more mobile car-crushers to turn them into scrap? A three-part enquiry into the motor car and its environment.

Starring Hannah Gordon and John Carson
Somebody is arranging evidence to prove that Harry Selter is a murderer. It could be any one of six people - or is there a seventh?

On 6 March 1942 a secret radio operator working for the Dutch Resistance was captured by Major Herman Giskes of German Military Intelligence in Holland. This gave the Germans an unparalleled chance to smash the Dutch underground movement - and even, perhaps, discover the date set for the Allied invasion of Europe.
The resulting duel of wits between Giskes and his Dutch captive, Hubertus Lauwers, led to one of the most brilliant and desperate warnings in the history of secret messages.

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.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
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.
