The Lost Ship of Kyrenia
In 1965 ANDREAS CARIOLOU located a huge pile of amphoras lying on the sea-bed off the coast of Cyprus. These wine jars were the cargo of a long-lost merchant ship. After years of meticulous work by specialists from 12 countries, that ship, the oldest sea-going ship in the world, now stands on display, together with its cargo, in the hall of Kyrenia Castle.
Narrator ANDREW FAULDS

: The Money Programme

The 1970s: What Went Wrong?
In the last decade all our economic certainties were turned upside down. Governments appeared no longer to control inflation, unemployment or public spending. So, what went wrong? In a co-production with America's leading business programme, Wall Street Week, Peter Hobday in London and Louis Rukeyser in Baltimore, talk to The Rt Hon Edward Heath , mp, William Simon , former us Treasury Secretary, and leading experts in Tokyo, Bonn and the Middle East. They will be asking if we could have coped any better with the energy crisis; done more to keep down inflation and why so many people in the industrialised world found themselves out of a job.
The 1980s look like starting with a world-wide recession; if we are to keep it at bay what lessons can we learn from the last ten years?

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.
