: Champion House: Don't Let your Right Hand...

by Derek Ingrey.
Starring Edward Chapman, Nicole Maurey, Maurice Kaufman, Virginia Stride, James Kerry

The death of one of the directors leaves a vacancy on the board of Multitex. It is a matter of no great concern to the Champions until one of the directors at Multitex has an idea that startles even his colleagues. It utterly amazes the Champions. Joe sees it as a serious threat to Champion Mills and is determined to fight it. Not everyone at Champion House agrees with Joe and he finds himself on his own in a ruthless battle of boardroom politics with no weapon but his cunning which, as his family have reason to know, is not inconsiderable.

: The State of the Jews

A special documentary by David Wheeler on the day that Israel celebrates its twentieth anniversary.
"It's very difficult to say what a Jewish identity is. It's a number of things -
it's religion, it's race, it's tradition, it's a way of life. It's everything." (London Jewish Teenager)
"If you don't live in Israel you cannot, and you never will be, a hundred per cent Jew." (Israeli Kibbutz Worker)

In its first twenty years of existence, the people of this highly controversial though geographically tiny Middle Eastern country - before the June crisis it was about the size of Wales-have fought three wars with the Arabs to defend the fulfilment of their historic yearning for a Jewish homeland. Why did it happen - this unprecedented return of a people to the land occupied by their ancestors two thousand years ago? And how does the existence of Israel today affect the lives and future of the vast majority of Jews in the world who continue to form minority communities in other countries?


Producer: David Wheeler

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
