SUNDAY TIMES
That is what the papers said when this programme was broadcast in the Third.
Mr. Blake is a schizophrenic patient in a psychiatric hospital who was slowly trained towards more normal speech and behaviour. It took a whole year, and the programme consists largely of recordings made during those actual training sessions-these are not comfortable listening.

: THE MONTE CARLO RALLY

ROBIN RICHARDS from Monte Carlo reports on the second stage of the Rally and talks to crews returning from the 24-hour classification test
The Rally proper began last night with a twenty-four-hour classification test over mountain roads and tracks in the French Alps. There are nineteen stages which have to be covered at a set average speed; and in addition to this there are nine special time-sections which are in fact races against the clock, every second taken counting towards penalty marks. The sixty least penalised competitors are then eligible to take part in the final phase of the Rally starting on Thursday night.

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.
