: Nationwide Budget Special

' A decade might be needed before our economy is really strong again.'
(SIR GEOFFREY HOWE, 26 February 1980)
At 3.30 this afternoon the Chancellor of the Exchequer presents his second Budget to the House of Commons. Although unemployment and inflation are rising, the Government is convinced that its tight monetary policies are the only way to cure the ills of the British economy.
David Dimbleby introduces the Budget Special with Peter Hobday explaining the impact of the Chancellor's measures and accountant
Philip Hardman on the effect of tax changes on personal and company budgets.

From Robin Day there is instant reaction to the Chancellors measures with Trade Union leader David Basnett and industrialist Patrick Meaney. From the City of London Gavyn Davis and the BBC's computer analyse the effects of the Budget on the economy. From Sir Geoffrey Howe's home town of Port Talbot John Stapleton assesses one depressed areas reaction. From Westminster, political comment once the Chancellor's speech is over.

: Open Secret

A report by Peter Williams
' We Made a Technical Mistake ... Up and down the country, hundreds of thousands of people are living in rooms that look filthy; but the black walls aren't dirty, they're alive with mould. And, for much of the year, they are wet.
Condensation in modern council homes is a problem of mammoth proportions. The councils usually blame the tenants; they say it's all due to the way the people live. But now, its becoming clear that the main fault lies at the designers' door. They overlooked simple schoolboy physics - that when warm moist air hits a cold surface, water is produced.
Open Secret visits Manchester, where the bill to put things right on one estate will be well over a million pounds; and a small town in Wales, where a quarter of all their council houses are being demolished because of condensation, only 12 years after they were built.
PETER WILLIAMS asks architects, Government advisors and council officials: How did we get into this mess? '

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.
