: Man Alive: Bookies Never Lose?

A weekly programme which focuses on people and the situations which shape their lives
Reporters Jim Douglas Henry, Jeremy James, Jeanne La Chard, John Pitman, Gillian Strickland, Desmond Wilcox, Harold Williamson

This week: Bookies Never Lose?
But now they say they can't do anything else. Legalised - but taxed to the hilt. Out in the open - but going broke
When the Government brought betting shops into all our lives it wasn't too long before they began to squeeze extra revenue from the men who quote the odds - £53 million last year. And today yet another tax comes into effect. It may be difficult for the punter to sympathise with the men who, tradition says, are the only real winners in the racing business. But the bookies are shouting not about horses, but about killing the goose that lays the golden egg. Many smaller bookies talk now about bankruptcy. But critics say they're only crying all the way to the bank. Are the odds now against the bookies? Who'll be tomorrow's winner?

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.
