: Can We Afford a Rolls-Royce?

A Risk Business Special
Ten years ago tonight, Britain's proudest company crashed into bankruptcy. It was a shock that rocked the entire nation. Since those dark days of 1971, the phoenix appears to have risen from the ashes. Thanks to the RB211 and a portfolio of advanced jet engines, backed by the efforts of its sales teams, Rolls-Royce is now a billion-pounds-a-year business, competing on equal terms with its American rivals.
But the Government has poured £400-million of aid into Rolls-Royce in the last ten years, and the company hasn't made significant profits since the bankruptcy - last year it announced a record loss and in the last few weeks Rolls have suffered record disappointments in the market place.
The Risk Business examines the cut-throat international world of jet engine companies, and asks whether Rolls-Royce will continue to need Government support to stay in that market-or whether the next ten years will produce the kind of profits that will justify the rescue of ten years ago.
The Open Secret series continues next week

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.
