CURRENCY and credit play a part of supreme I importance in a modern state, and control over them is usually considered a matter too important to be entrusted even to a Government. i Hence the existence of central banks, such as our own Bank of England, which is responsible for note-issuing and monetary policy, its weapon for this purpose being the rate of discount, which it controls. Mr. Kisch, who gives this talk, has been Secretary of the Financial Department of the India Office since 1921, and he was Secretary to the Indian Currency Committee in 1919.

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.
