: The Money Programme

Pay As You Learn
Everybody does, of course, one way or another. The bill for education makes up almost half the local rates bill and a good proportion of our income tax. But others, the parents of half-a-million children, also pay up to f 1,000 a head each year to have their children educated privately. The Money Programme looks at the shape of the private education business, explains how parents - and some private schools - pay less by tax-avoidance devices, and asks, do they get better value for their money?
DAVID TAYLOR goes to Lancing College, and other private schools, to see how they manage their affairs. _ Presented by BRIAN WIDLAKE with PAUL GRIFFITHS and ROBERT MCKENZIE

The Mark of Zorro starring Douglas Fairbanks with Marguerite de la Motte
Noah Beery Robert McKim
In 19th-century Spanish California, the many wrongs of the despotic Governor are righted by the mysterious masked avenger Zorro who leaves his famous mark on all his defeated opponents.
In his first costume picture, Douglas Fairbanks established the movie character in which he was to become a legend-that of the gay daredevil adventurer whose flamboyant swashbuckling charmed a generation.
Adapted by DOUGLAS FAIRBANKS from the novel The Curse of Capistrano by JOHNSTON MCCULLEY Director FRED NIBLO

Barry Askew introduces a look at the stories, the issues and the people from the world of information, comment and opinion.
Will newspapers become redundant?
Short of money, short of newsprint, short of readers; yet Fleet Street still prints, like Caxton, with ink on paper. Can technology change that? Ian Breach reports.

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.

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.
