: The Risk Business

The first of seven programmes
Blue Jeans
The High Streets of Britain are witnessing a spectacular battle which, until now, has been fought out in America's main streets; the struggle between the high-priced designer jeans and the so-called basic jeans which have for so long had this massive market to themselves.
Judith Hann analyses the blue jeans business and meets the man who first put an expensive signature on the back pocket of his company's products and found he was sitting on a gold mine. The Risk Business visits Hong Kong and discovers a new twist in the old tale of sweat shops and cheap labour costs in the Far East.
Blue jeans have, until recently, spelt high profits and thousands of jobs in the West. The old order is now being attacked, not only by the new economic equation in the East but by a cheeky Cockney retailer operating from a converted cinema in London.

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.
