The greatest living designer of popular cars, Sir Alec Issigonis , describes himself as an ironmonger who built tin boxes to get people from A to B. Working on the backs of envelopes and on restaurant tablecloths, he conceived the two most successful British cars of all time - the Morris Minor and the Mini. On his 80th birthday he reflects ruefully on a motor industry dominated by computers and committees. 'All cars look exactly the same now,' he insists, 'except the Mini.' Sir Alec's arrogant and autocratic approach to his work was the key to his success, but, as Maxwell Boyd reveals, it was also the cause of his downfall. Producer BRIAN KING. BBC Pebble Mill

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.
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.
