: Mexican Madness

The story of the Rio Balsas Power Boat Marathon
The State of Guerrero is one of the most arid and beautiful in Mexico. Once a year the canyons and the river are shattered by the roar of power boats.
Visiting crews from all over the world send their 600hp jet-boats snarling down the rapids at 70 miles an hour - The 400-mile race lasts five days and passes through rapids and canyons, lakes and the open sea. Each night the Mexican army build a barbed wire camp on the beach - bandits without, scorpions within. For the Rio
Balsas is much more than just a river race - it is a journey through Mexico.

Germany: the Miracle Fades Germany since the war has been envied by her European neighbours. Stable, prosperous and successfully combating inflation and unemployment, the German economic and political miracle seemed set to continue. But over the past two years daunting problems have emerged.
Unemployment has risen to a record two million, and a steady rise in living standards is no longer taken for granted. At the same time, doubts have been growing about Germany's role in NATO, and the fast-growing peace movement is challenging the very basis of foreign and defence policy.
As Chancellor Schmidt faces this formidable array of problems and challenges, David Jessel reports on the new uncertainties in Germany.

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.
