Investigates, Discovers, Questions This week:
The Cellarmen
' People who combine together to keep up prices do not shout it from the housetops; they make their own arrangements in the cellar where no one can see.'
(LORD DENNING)
And what those cellarmen are doing is engaging in private resale price maintenance, at I 2 expense of the shopper and shopkeeper. ' Pile it high and sell it cheap' is the motto of the supermarkets. But some manufacturers won't sell to supermarkets who say it's because they sell too cheaply and don't play according to the manufacturer's rules.
Because of the price-fixers, not only are some prices too high, but so are our rates, and maybe even our taxes. A secret battle is being fought in town halls to hit back at price-rigging by contractors, but with little success.
Now a new law is being brought in to outlaw ' the cellarmen '.
Jeremy James , Michael Dean and Jenny Conway examine the price-riggers - and the new law aimed at banning them.

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.
