The Empire of the Dollar

Synopsis

We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
Trevor Philpott investigates the effects of the surge of American business into Europe.
Day by day the American hold on European industry tightens. American-controlled firms now make one tenth of everything manufactured in this country. They employ one out of every eighteen Britons. They own more than half of several vital industries-cars, computers, cosmetics, office and accounting machinery, drugs; and they have a major share in many more-rubber, machine tools, oil, agricultural machinery, chemicals, electronics. American industry's stake in Europe is growing at the bewildering rate of £4 million in every twenty-four hours. What does this mean to Britain? Should we, can we, fight back? If so, how? And what might happen if we don't?

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.
