: The Risk Business: The Hype

Two years ago, Sarah Harrison was an unknown housewife living near Royston with an attic full of unpublished manuscripts. But since then she's become the author of what her agent and publisher claim will be a massive best-seller. They are attempting to get the book into the shops by hyping it - a process on which the success of all mass-market books depends.
Tonight's programme investigates just how close ' The Hype' can come to conning the booksellers and the public. Judith Hann and Sophy Robinson guide you through the world of schlock, bodice rippers, hot historicals and sheer adulterated commercial publishing!

by Jeremy Paul

'These refuseniks have all been denied visas to go to Israel. Some are in prison, others are suffering KGB harassment even as I speak... the point of asking you here is to find ways of mounting a barrage of publicity in the media. To act as horseflies, if you like, on the Kremlin's rump.'

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.
