: The Money Programme

The Great Escape
Clear blue seas, sunny skies, unpolluted beaches and no taxes to pay. That is many people's impression of a tax haven. But what are they really like, and who uses them? In this 500th edition, past and present reporters of The Money Programme file stories from some of the world's greatest tax havens. William Davis reports from the Cayman Islands. Paul Griffiths looks at the difficulties of working in a tax haven from the South Pacific splendour of the New Hebrides. Brian Widlake talks with some of the people who have gone to the Caribbean tax haven, The Bahamas. And James Bel- lini reports from the oldest tax haven of all - Campione.

: Inside Story

A series of eight contemporary documentaries. 2: The Orlov Defence
In April 1977 a long-distance call from Moscow was put through to a London barrister. In the 15 seconds before she was cut off by the KGB a Russian woman begged the lawyer to undertake the defence of her husband. His name was Professor Yuri Orlov , held incommunicado in Lefortovo Prison on unspecified charges.
John MacDonald , Qc, accepted the unique brief, and this film documentary is the story of how he, a British lawyer, unfamiliar with Russian and the Russian legal system, set out to defend a client he had never seen, and to whom the authorities would allow no access.
YURI ORLOV is a Russian dissident and champion of Human Rights. The story of his defence is told at a time when the USSR has just squashed all attempts to condemn her human rights record at the Belgrade Conference. Orlov - held in defiance of his country's own laws - now awaits the inevitable show-trial and punishment.

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.
