: 'Motor-car Electrical Equipment'

Since the War, Birmingham has experienced something in the nature of an industrial re-birth, many historic manufacturing establishments having been greatly extended and equipped with the latest plant for efficient production on the most modern lines. It has been called ' the workshop of the world,' and its manufactures, covering more than a thousand trades, are now on a vaster scale than ever. Tonight listeners will visit one of the largest plants in the city where electrical equipment for motor-cars, motor-cycles, and cycles is turned out in prodigious quantities. Noises incidental to the production and testing will be heard during the talk, which will be given by Mr. A. PADDON SMITH. from the works in West Birmingham (tho division represented in Parliament for so many years by Joseph Chamberlain )

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.
