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.

: The Codebreakers: 3: Operation North Pole

Presented by Rene Cutforth

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.
Based on the book "The Codebreakers" by David Kahn with the help of the Imperial War Museum

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.

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

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
