: Americans: 1: The Company President

by Desmond Wilcox
The characters we know from fiction who still live on today. Thirteen programmes which look at figures in an American landscape.
In the United States today, more people would rather be President of General Motors than President of the country. Elliott M. Estes made it all the way from the factory floor to the top of the second largest business empire in the world.
He runs a corporation so big that, if it was an independent country, measured by wealth, it would be the sixth largest nation on earth. He has achieved the corporation man's most spectacular dream. Now, he earns a million dollars a year as boss of 750,000 employees and, in true American tradition, he'd like every one of them to call him 'Pete.'
He starts work at dawn, seldom takes holidays and can't bring himself to speak the names of his competitors out loud. He is heavily guarded at all times and has never before allowed his life and work to be filmed.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
