: Business Matters: Sloan's Ranges

General Motors President Alfred Sloan Jr had one mission in 1920 - to break the stranglehold of the Model T Ford on the world's car market. He succeeded through the ruthless logic of his product ranges.
Michael Rodd looks at how the marketing techniques which Sloan created are still used today by companies as diverse as Habitat and Lego. And Brian Toulson of Leeds demonstrates how he broke into one of the strongest product ranges in the world with a machine which he invented in his garage. (R) (e)

A rigorous schedule of lifeboat drills, fancy dress parades and camel rides is interrupted only by the occasional Force Nine gale and, with single ladies in abundance, the ship's officers are busier off duty than on. Narrator Lewis Fiander Executive producer JENNY BARRACLOUGH

: Everyman

God's Own Country?
It's election year in the United States and middle
America is worried: worried about the dramatic increase in drug abuse, abortion,
AIDS and violent crime, a rising tide which is no longer just confined to the big cities. America is a deeply Christian country - 70 million
Americans claim to be 'born again' - and many think that the only solution to this moral vacuum is to make sure God is returned to centre stage in American politics. Many others are fighting hard to maintain the constitutional separation of Church and State.
Filmed against the colourful back-drop of the Presidential election, this programme explores the phenomenon of moral America on the march, and meets the two Christian candidates. Pat Robertson and Jesse Jackson , who, from opposite ends of the political spectrum, are addressing the nation's moral misgivings. Film cameraman IAN STONE Film editor SUE SPIVEY

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.
