That's the Way the Money Goes


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.
A series of ten programmes for everyone who spends money on goods or services. 2:Be Reasonable!
Have you ever bought something in a sale, or by mail order, and not been satisfied? Or bought something that works at first but then wears badly or breaks down? When is it reasonable to expect compensation or your money back? Paul and Cathy face these problems on their wedding anniversary - and then the man from Ripoffomatic calls to mend something that's gone wrong yet again.

That's the Way the Money Goes

BBC Two England, 28 April 1978 19.05

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.
