: 'WHEELS'

Ⓓ A feature programme by Jonquil Antony
'.. and ever goth the whele about...'
Production by Pascoe Thornton
(Empire Programme)
Here is a novelty programme that is to discuss everything of interest concerning wheels. Its scope ranges from about the year 2800 B.C. down to the present day. Listeners will hear about wheels as diminutive as the cog-wheels in a watch and as big as the great wheel which was a feature of the Earl's Court Exhibition—especially when it stuck and a sailor climbed round it with refreshments for its stranded passengers. Carriage wheels, water wheels, Catherine wheels-anything and everything about wheels comes into this programme.

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.
