: The Persuaders: 6: You Don't Like to Ask, Do You?

What really makes you choose a product, a book, a belief, an idol, a cause?
This series looks inside the world of the persuaders and examines the methods used to influence you.
"I will not belittle myself to ask for charity in whatever form it comes."
How do you persuade a starving old lady who says that to take up her supplementary pension? Hundreds of thousands of people in our Welfare State, through ignorance, fear, or pride, do not collect the benefits they are entitled to. In such cases the authorities are clearly failing to get their message across.
Cliff Michelmore with a selected audience examines in this programme some of the obstacles that prevent people from claiming their rights and seeing what can be done about it.

Tuesday's Documentary
A further chapter in Malcolm Muggeridge 's television autobiography
Twenty years ago during the administration of Harry Truman , Malcolm Muggeridge worked in the United States as the Washington correspondent of the London Daily Telegraph. After two years at the centre of the Western political world he came to the conclusion that he would rather be on the periphery, and left with relief.
Last year Muggeridge returned to Washington to retread his old paths, to visit again the capital ' whose only industry is government and whose only output is words,' and to see whether his reactions remained the same combination of bemusement and foreboding.
This film records these reactions.

: NAIRN AT LARGE

6: They don'build 'em like they used to!
Ian Nairn looks at the changing face of Britain
Most drinkers are unanimous in their preference for Victorian city pubs or rural inns instead of the chrome and plate-glass of the modern pub. Ian Nairn shows that it is possible to build a good modern pub or successfully modernise an older one.
Unfortunately these good modern pubs, or ones that have been imaginatively modernisedusually on the landlord's own initiative-are few and far between. Most of them are in the London area, but Ian Nairn has discovered three more on the south coast: two in Portsmouth and one in Brighton which advertises itself as Britain's first family pub. But he is the first to admit that a pub is something much more than its architecture and design, and seizes the chance to attack irritants, like the trend towards larger and larger breweries selling keg and similar beers' tied houses ' — and not least, the British licensingjaws.

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.

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.
