One of the great advantages of silver goblets is that you can go on dropping them and in 50 years still have a set intact.
Christopher Lawrence is the only silversmith to have been awarded the title 'Craftsman of the Year': he has received this honour three times. He brings a feeling for modern design to a craft rooted in medieval techniques.
Because of silver's great intrinsic value, his work is sought after both for its investment value and its artistic interest.
Money-the force behind so many of our actions: loving and hating, hiring and firing, living and starving, or just piling it up. The people, the stories, and the action behind the one commodity no one can do without - money.
Together with the Money-Minder - a regular feature with up-to-the-minute news of the Stock Market: the rise and fall of shares, the bulls and the bears. What is it all about?
A weekly look at the investment world.
John Seymour, writer and traveller, finds on the shores of the Irish Sea a community where the past still lingers so that even New Year's Day comes a fortnight late.
It is a civilised place to live, but how long can it remain so?
Starring Dave Allen
with Jacqueline Clarke, Ronnie Brody, Ian Burford, Michael Sharvell-Martin and Chris Serle
The second of three films directed by Rene Clair
Starring Max Dearly, Renee Saint-Cyr, Marthe Mellot
Made during Hitler's rise to power and released just after the assassination of the King of Yugoslavia, Clair's incisive and hard-hitting satire on high finance and dictatorship, set in the mythical state of Casinario, where Ministers (above) try to persuade Banco to invest.

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.
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.
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.
