: The Money Programme

in America
As Britain celebrates the Silver Jubilee, James Bellini visits the United States to find out how
Americans see us.
In The Money Programme Louis Rukeyser, presenter of the financial television programme Wall Street Week, and Hughes Rudd , who introduces a breakfast-hour news special each morning from CBS studios, talk to JAMES BELLINI about Britain.
Each week they both express their views to tens of millions of Americans. What they say can greatly affect the ideas that the American people hold. So how do they view us? What are the problems - economic, social and political - that they believe Britain faces? And how important do Americans consider us to be?

: North with NYJO

The National Youth Jazz
Orchestra on Tour in Scotland
Twenty-six young jazz musicians, most still in their teens, form the most exciting big band in Britain. Earlier this year they took to the road - bodies, baggage and instruments crammed aboard their band coach just like the classic big bands of the 30s - and toured Scotland, playing an exhausting series of one-night stands.
This is an impression of what it was like to tour with NYJO, with music from their final public concert in Edinburgh.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
