Barrie Gill and Gordon Wilkins visit the London Motor Show with MAXWELL BOYD , MICHAEL FROSTICK and JUDITH JACKSON.
Why are there no new British cars at the Motor Show? Strikes have postponed the Triumph Dolomite and at least three other new models. Manufacturers are against an annual show because it costs too much. Millions are being switched from the introduction of new cars to making existing ones conform to American ideas on road safety. An outside broadcast enquiry, direct from Earls Court, into the mystery of the missing cars.

: Billy Liar

Tonight's film in this season of British films by some of the distinguished directors and writers who brought a new style to the cinema in the 60s starring Tom Courtenay with Julie Christie
Billy Fisher 's real world is bounded by a dull Northern town, a job as clerk in an undertaker's office, a quarrelsome relationship with his parents and a potentially explosive one with two girls to whom he has simultaneously become engaged. A compulsive liar, Billy is also ruler of his own fantasy kingdom of Ambrosia, to which he retreats when circumstances become too much for him -which is often.
Tom Courtenay plays Billy in this adaptation by Keith Waterhouse and Willis Hall of their play.

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.

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