: A Question of Inflation: The People Talking

Tuesday's Documentary
Inflation is a word we read every day. Politicians and commentators talk endlessly about it, but what do ordinary people think? As prices go up and wages go up, the pound seems to be worth less. Desmond Wilcox asks ordinary people in Birmingham what inflation means to them. Young couples say they can'afford homes of their own; pensioners say they can'afford the weekly shopping bill. One car-worker claims he is worse off today than he was 20 years ago.
Is there an answer? Does it lie with the politicians or the people?

: Cradle of England

A series of six programmes giving a view of man and his expanding society seen in the archaeological landscape of the South. 5: The Age of Affluence
For the greater part of its 400-years occupation of Britain the Roman Empire brought peace, stable government, and for many of the British themselves an un-dreamed-of prosperity.
Large towns like Winchester, Chichester, Bath, were served by great roads, bringing merchants with slaves and luxury goods, the latest fashions, as well as life's necessities. There was running water, public baths, theatres, temples, grandiose town halls.
Britain was apparently well-started on the long road to civilisation.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
