Wheelbase covers the world of motoring

The Vehicle and General insurance crash left three-quarters of a million motorists with worthless policies and no cover. Why was there no warning of the firm's failure? Are there more shocks on the way in British motor insurance? Barrie Gill investigates.

British Leyland's long-awaited new family car codenamed ADO 28 is due to be announced today. Gordon Wilkins judges its chances of success in the show-room and Michael Frostick test drives the car of the week on the winding roads of the French Maritime Alps.

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.
