: Pettifer in America

The Impossible Dream
In Florida there is a new village called ' The Village of Anything is Possible.' In it stands a medieval castle - a proper castle complete with drawbridge and moat - it too is new. Just two of the latest impossible dreams that one man, a multi-millionaire, has made come true.
Glenn Wesley Turner is the super-salesman of self-confidence and success. To some he is a saint. The patron saint of Free Enterprise - a man divinely inspired - a man with a message and a mission. To make us all very rich and to unite the world in Love, Unity and Understanding. But to many others he is little more than the crook at the end of the rainbow, who it's said is swindling people around the world in one pyramid venture after another.
Tonight Julian Pettifer reports on the man who says he'll be in the White House in 1976, but who others think will be in jail instead. The man they call unstoppable. Con Man or Saint? Glenn Turner.

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.
