: The Risk Business

'... they're positively geriatric.'
That was the criticism levelled by customers at the shoes made by the old-established family firm, C. & J. Clark. Five years ago Britain's shoe manufacturers were reeling under the onslaught from overseas and from the economic recession. Four hundred firms closed down, and Clarks found itself particularly vulnerable in a market which appeared to be moving away from ' sensible' shoes and traditional products.
Judith Hann and Andrew Neil follow the company's fight back, building itself a completely new look for those geriatric shoes and for the company itself. A new emphasis on design and experimental shoe-making techniques helped Clarks win its way into new corners of the market, but put at risk the company's special relationship with the loyal small shop owners, and they created a set of unexpected and unwanted problems for the men and women who make the shoes.
The Risk Business has recorded a year in the life of one of the most ambitious new design projects, and reports that traditions die very hard in the shoe industry.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
