: The Risk Business

A Licence to Breed Money
Ask any stockbroker which technologies are the hottest investments today and he'll probably say two words: chips and bugs. For just as the 70s created the chip millionaires, so the 80s are spawning a new breed of bug millionaires.
' Biotechnology ' has become the new buzzword for speculators, because biology has come out of the laboratory and into the market-place. Biologists are manipulating genes to produce custom-built bacteria ... living factories capable of making some of the most valuable products on earth. The Risk Business looks at the extraordinary growth of new companies at the frontiers of this technology and sees how they are scrambling to buy up the world's top microbiologists.
Yet there is a South Sea Bubble flavour to this speculation. Promises rather than products have raised millions. The science still has to prove its potential. And there is a more fundamental worry; some scientists fear that big business could alter the course of biological research for ever. Reporter Judith Hann

The top events, personalities and stories in sport. Tonight:
Whatever Happened to the Next Fred Perry ?
With British tennis currently facing radical proposals for re-organisation, probably our greatest need is a Wimbledon Men's Champion - the last time Great Britain received such a boost was back in 1936 when Fred Perry won his third consecutive title. Gerald Williams examines the problems facing our tennis administrators following the major surgery recommended by last year's government report, and compares the progress of Britain's young players with those of the leading European nations, Czechoslovakia, France and Sweden who have produced five-times winner of Wimbledon Bjorn Borg ,

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.
