: The Money Programme

Has the Tide Turned?
Professor Milton Friedman gives his views on the state of the British economy.
In 1976, the year that PROFESSOR FRIEDMAN won the Nobel Prize for Economics, he predicted that there was a 50-50 chance that democracy and freedom in Britain would be destroyed within five years. His reason? Professor Friedman argued that as central and local government spending rises so the needs of government for more funds outweigh the willingness of people to pay taxes. He believes that government spending must be reduced to avoid confrontation.
Tonight, in a lecture at Strathclyde University, Professor Friedman makes a new assessment. Has government economic policy of the last two years made him reconsider his view? Has the economic tide turned for Britain?

: A Tale of Three Cities

Part 3: Jerusalem
Competing with the domes and minarets of Old Jerusalem is a forest of television aerials growing higher and higher to capture not only Israeli but also Arab television from Jordan.
Set up ten years ago to counter Arab propaganda, Israeli television today has to reach a home audience of which a large part is Arabic-speaking living in occupied territory. Also in a small vulnerable country television has to build up national solidarity. How Israeli television meets both requirements in times of crisis is one illuminating aspect of the way television copes with societies in conflict.
Richard Kershaw reports from Jerusalem, home of Israeli television, in the last of this series about cities and their television.

Eric D. Morley painted by Michael Noakes
' And here are the results of Miss World in reverse order ...'
On the strength of this one sentence every year, 26 million people make up their minds about the Chairman of the biggest entertainment business in the world.
The artist is equally skilful with brush and question, and persuades ERIC MORLEY to talk candidly about his early life, the press, high finance, race relations and of course Miss World.

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.
