: The Team - a Season with McLaren

From the production team that made the televised history of motor racing, The Power and The Glory, comes a new seven-part series on a year in the life of the McLaren Formula 1 racingteam.
Cameras followed McLaren, and team boss Ron Dennis , through the highs and lows of the 1993 Grand Prix season, a season in which number one driver Ayrton Senna began by complainingthat his car was not competitive and ended with him signingto drive for arch-rivals Williams next year. It was a year, too, in which McLaren signed Michael Andretti , the American IndyCar champion, to drive as their number two - a gamble that didn't come off.
The first programme comes from the Portuguese Grand Prix where the Formula 1 title was settled, where Senna announced his move and where
Mika Hakkinen replaced
Andretti in the number two car.

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.
