: The Money Programme: So You Think Your Company is British?

Has a government the power to control its own economy? Over the last few years the growth of multinational companies, some bigger than many countries, has cast doubts on the continuance of national sovereignties.

The companies will go on growing, the sales of General Motors are already greater than the Gross National Product of Norway and Denmark combined. They help to determine our balance of payments and our unemployment. Are they wolves in sheep's clothing? Who owns whom?

The Money Programme looks at the growth of these massive companies and the problems they present. Among those appearing will be the chairman of General Motors James Roche and Folke Lindskug the chairman of SKF.

: Come Fishing: To the Far-away Lochs

with Eric Stevens

The brown trout in the hill lochs of Scotland vary enormously - in weight - in looks - and in habits. They rarely approach in size the large reservoir trout of southern middle England. But there's more - much more - to trout fishing than just trying to catch big fish. There's atmosphere - there's remoteness - an away-from-it-all feeling in waters far removed from the overcrowded waters of the south.

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.
