: Ferrari: the Italian Legend

In this Top Gear special Jeremy Clarkson discovers why in Italy the religion is Catholicism, but the god is Ferrari. Of all the super-cars - Lamborghini, McClaren and Jaguar included - the Ferrari is the epitome of a car enthusiast's fantasy. The name, the styling inside and out, the chassis, the engine, the performance - fans believe they all combine in mechanical and aesthetic perfection. The road models provide finesse and delicacy, with enormous power under the hood. And on the race track the Ferrari record is second to none - they have won more racing events than any other team, and have completed the Le Mans/Formula One World Championship double not once, but three times. Jeremy also gets to drive some of his own dream cars, including the Daytona and the 456GT, the latter of which he describes as "a steel deity. It's sex on wheels."

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.
