: Money at Work: The New Capitalism

In private enterprise Britain, more than half the economy is under Government control; this year £1,000-million of public money will go into industry. The red-in-tooth capitalists of the 19th century now look to Whitehall rather than the City to keep them afloat.

Money at Work talks to Averell Harriman who helped switch control of America's economy 'from Wall Street to Washington' in the 1930s; Czechoslovakia's former Deputy Prime Minister; and to MPs, trade unionists and businessmen about how capitalism has changed its spots.
Together with comment on the business and industrial scene.

Presented by Brian Widlake
With Paul Griffiths, David Taylor and Robert McKenzie

: World Cinema: Les Carabiniers

The second in a season of films by this unique and controversial director - JEAN-LUC GODARD starring
Marino Mase , Albert Juross
Two peasant brothers, summoned by their King, go off to fight in a great war. They murder and pillage to their heart's content, sending home postcards to their womenfolk telling of their enjoyable experiences.
In this ironic fable Godard looks at the utter futility and stupidity of war and at its brutalising effect on the men who fight.

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.
