Professor of Applied Economics at Manchester University
Sir Leslie Hollis K.C.B. , K.B.E. formerly Chief Staff Officer to the Minister of Defence
Last night's programme in this series dealt with the new military realities that must now condition British defence policy. Tonight's speakers deal with some economic factors that must also be taken into account. Can we continue to afford to spend one and half thousand million pounds each year on defence? What would be the real economic effect of any substantial cut in defence expenditure? And are we getting full value for the money now being spent?

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.
