Destination Doha 1: The Easy Bit?
Late on a wintry Tuesday night, four men in three massive 40-ton lorries leave England on a 5,000-mile journey through 11 countries. Their destination, Doha. The cargo, a bizarre mixture of goods for this capital of the newly-rich oil Emirate of Qatar.
The adventures of the men on their four-week drive through Europe, Asia Minor, the Middle East and across the deserts of Arabia are told this week and next. Tonight's programme sees the convoy to Istanbul, through snow, breakdowns, police hold-ups and other complications. But it wasn't only the lorries that had problems. The run through Europe was meant to be the easy bit: it didn't quite work out that way. Narrator BENNY GREEN

: Seven Artists

Third in a series of seven films
Victor Pasmore
What makes a relatively successful artist suddenly completely change his way of painting and, after being recognised as a brilliant realist, suddenly go abstract?
Tonight's film tells the story of how the work of VICTOR PASMORE , one of the most acclaimed of modern British painters, has undergone a series of dramatic changes, and gives the viewer a chance of watching him in action.

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.
