: The Risk Business

The Fight for Wheal Jane
' If you ask whether this mine could survive, the answer's a resounding yes. If you ask will it survive, then that's anyone's guess.' On 26 April 1978, the giant mining group Consolidated Gold Fields announced that it was to close the Wheal Jane tin mine, near Truro in Cornwall. Seven days later 500
Cornish tin miners descended on London to lobby Parliament. The fight to save Wheal Jane had begun.
Five weeks later, as the RADIO TIMES goes to press, the final outcome is still uncertain. Wheal Jane 's chances have gone up and down like a yo-yo. There have been endless late-night bargaining sessions in London, a government rescue attempt, and a mystery takeover bid from a company identified only as ' Firm X'. The Risk Business cameras followed day-to-day events at the mine and looked at the background to the decisions being taken 300 miles away in London - the wheeling and dealing on London's Metal Exchange, the international politics of tia pricing, and Consolidated Gold Fields' poker game with the Government.

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.
