: The Team - a Season with McLaren

It's the Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal and Michael Andretti is hoping for success after crashing out in his first four races in a car that just isn't fast enough. "We are not doing the job we need to provide him with a car and engine, and he's not doing the job he needs to do as a driver," says team boss Ron Dennis.
This is the second in the documentary series charting the 1992 season with the McLaren Formula tracing team. While Nigel Mansell had made a triumphant switch from Grand Prix to IndyCar racing, Andretti's attempts to go the other way into the stress-filled world of Formula 1 are proving a disaster.
Perhaps a race on the North American continent will turn the tide, but precious practice time Is lost as his car gives trouble, culminating in a terrible start. At least It wasn't Andretti's fault.

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.
