: The Money Programme

Less Taxing for Some?
A taxpayer's affairs are traditionally private. So, too, are the activities of the Inland Revenue whose job it is to collect the tax. But how much tax is evaded each year, and what chance do the Inland Revenue really have of catching the evaders? Last year the tax men recovered less defrauded tax than in 1960. Are we more honest or just more devious? For the first time, the men from the Revenue talk to The Money Programme about the scale of evasion in Britain today. Presented by BRIAN WIDLAKE

: A Taste of Britain

' The best present you can give a young couple today is a tin opener ' - a characteristic remark from a disillusioned countryman. Yet 100 years ago English cooking was thought, even by some French-men. to be the finest in the world. Now Britain's regional foods are in danger of being packaged and processed out of existence. Severnside
This programme considers one region - Severnside. It examines the disappearance of Gloucestershire's succulent pork and strong cheese; and why it's the bottom of the barrel for scrumpy cider. Narrator DEREK JONES

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.
