Rich countries are industrialised. Poor countries are not. Should the poor be trying to catch up with the rich? Or should we be scaling down our own production and consumption closer to theirs? In this programme - the first in a series of six on the relationship between the rich and poor countries - John Percival argues that the spread of modern industry, far from solving the problems of poverty in the world, actually makes it worse.
The programme shows girls in Ceylon thrown out of work by modern machine looms, families in Ghana forced out of their homes by the demands of a big foreign firm, and one of our own unemployed, a skilled tradesman, made jobless by so-called progress. Industry brings its own problems in its train - pollution; the exhaustion of resources; and benefits to the rich at the expense of the poor.

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.
