The two survivors were freed by a court in Lahore and had to be smuggled out of Pakistan to Europe to escape the vengeance of Islamic extremists.

: The Oh So Beautiful Bugatti

In the history of the car, few names evoke such emotion, reverence and sheer excitement as that of Ettore Bugatti. Born in 1881, he was as much an artist as an engineer - an individualist who not only designed his cars, but made the drawings and supervised production in his factory at Molsheim in Alsace, France.
In this celebration of the man and his cars, and their modern namesakes, Bugattis are seen arriving by barge at the Piazza San Marco in Venice - the first time everthat cars have been allowed to enter the city. In the words of the city's mayor: "Venice is a city of art and of excellence and therefore it is right to welcome Bugatti."

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.

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.
