: THE PLUTOCRATS

Tuesday's Documentary
A film by PETER BATTY
How rich is rich in Texas?
Why, Texan-rich of course-and to be thought rich in Texas you need to be worth at least £ 20-million.
Tonight's film is about four such
Texan-rich Texans. An oil man whose wife has a passion for million-pound paintings. The boss of the world-famous Dallas department store where the Big Rich of Texas buy their goodies-goodies such as submarines and solid-gold tooth-picks. The richest Texan (he earns £ 75,000 a day) and the most controversial, for he spends this wealth on what many consider to be reactionary causes. The greatest living showman, builder too of the world's biggest sports stadium.
A taste of Texas, home of the brashest, most flamboyant, most controversial multi - millionaires anywhere.

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 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 find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

This is a historical record of both 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.
