: The Risk Business

The last of six programmes
What Have We Got To Offer?
Do we as a nation make the most of our front runners, do we even recognise them? Every British industry has some products that deserve to be winners. Products that make the best use of the skills of our workforce. It could be our advanced technology that marks them out; it could be straight ingenuity, or even, in a mass-produced world, sheer quality.
William Woollard and Judith Hann look at some of the implications for British industry underlying the stories told in this series of The Risk Business. Is it possible, perhaps, to draw up a strategy for success-a strategy based on recognising and exploiting our strengths rather than trying to prop up those industries particularly vulnerable to competition from the developing world?
Andrew Neil asks union leader Hugh Scanlon , and NEDO'S Sir Ronald Mclntosh , whether Britain is making the most of her talent and whether industry is putting its money into the businesses which really can hold their own with the world's best.

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.
