: The Risk Business

The Clash of the Titans
The double-decker bus is as British an institution as fish and chips or cricket, and, as the Empire expanded, so did the market for these peculiarly British products. Today, the United Kingdom satisfies 90 per cent of the world's demand for double-decker buses.
But, as the world energy crisis expands, Britain's supremacy in the market is under threat. At home, Government policy looks set to reduce demand for new double-deckers and whilst British manufacturers work out how to handle that crisis foreign manufacturers are gearing up to challenge us in the rest of the world.
Confident that everyone needs more rather than fewer double-deckers, both the Swedes and the Germans are even developing plans to bring their double-deckers to Britain.
Judith Hann and Michael Rodd investigate why Britain's new generation of super double-deckers face problems, report on the new tactics of our foreign competitors and meet the British bus operators who say they may have to buy foreign to ' gee up our own 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.
