Everything was an unlucky 13: the 13th day of July, the 13th stage of the Tour de France; his race number and the year added up to 13.
Twenty years ago, Tom Simpson set off with the remains of a rag-bag team of also-rans and part-timers to race from Marseilles to Carpentras.
The raggle-taggle army made it. But Tom Simpson dropped dead at the top of a ten-mile mountain, where molten tar ran down the gutters in rivulets. What killed him? The heat? His ambition? Overwork? Or was it drugs?
Les Woodland reconstructs the fatal day, with Simpson's team-mates, Vin Denson and Barry Hoban ; his widow Helen; team officials Harry Hall and Alec Taylor; supporter Albert Beurick and journalist Alan Gayfer. Producer LES WOODLAND BBC Manchester

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.
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.
