: Wilderness

with Anthony Smith Lake Rudolf
That most excellent surprise ... a lake in the wilderness
Pass wandering tribes resting with their cattle at water-holes in the heart of the North Kenyan desert. Travel the route of camel trains through places where the winds blow hot across the lava and tear away the covering from the long-buried past.
Arrive at the shores of the last great natural feature of Africa to be discovered by modern man, and feel the isolation of a wilderness so well protected, so well equipped to look after itself-if left alone.
Fifth of eight personal journeys.
Written and introduced by ANTHONY SMITH (Bristol). Preview page 5

: The Money Programme

Gilt Complex
If, for the best of reasons, you invested in Government Stock-Gilts-25 years ago you'd have little of your money left today. Inflation would have wiped most of it out. But politicians still urge us to save. It's the patriotic thing to do. Yet even at the rates of interest the Government offer us now you can still lose money: 15 per cent interest, 17 per cent inflation. If Governments were bankers-they'd at least have a Gilt Complex. But should one try to save at all? And if so - how do you do it with any hope of defending the value of your money - let alone increasing it?

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.
