: Gold

The extraordinary story of the world's largest robbery - the theft of £26 million of gold bars from the Brink's-Mat warehouse in November 1983. Eight men have already been convicted for their part in the story; two others were acquitted at a recent, highly publicised Old Bailey trial. With the help of the man leading the police hunt,
Det Chief Supt Boyce , and with insights into the criminal underworld from
Andrew Jennings and John McVicar , the film follows the tortuous trail of the gold. Using some dramatic reconstruction, it shows how this massive amount of gold, beyond the robbers' wildest expectations, was smelted in a garden shed, passed over the counter of unsuspicious local banks, and fed into an international 'money laundering' operation, with much of it ending up, thanks to Britain's relaxed exchange controls, in the American drugs market.

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.
