: Clarkson's Car Years

Concluding the series in which Jeremy Clarkson propounds his personal views on the best stories from recent automotive history.
Family Car 2000. One of the greatest challenges in car design, the race to produce the perfect family car has thrown up a multitude of shapes and sizes. The Ford
Focus, the original Renault Espace and Fiat's Multipla are among the cars Clarkson tests for key qualities such as price, fuel economy, speed, size, safety and spaciousness.
Clarkson passes comment in his usual uncompromising manner on modern drivers and their machines, offering short shrift to those who own off-roaders before admitting he has one himself. He suggests that of all the bizarre predictions that were made about how life would be in the 21st century, the only one that holds true is that our cars look "completely ridiculous".

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.
