: The Philpott File: Inside a Multinational

Money, Money, Money
The most important tool of the oil trade is money. The big oil companies make it, borrow it and spend it in quantities that are almost impossible to comprehend. The sort of loans taken out to finance the Alaskan pipeline and the Forties field could bankrupt a company long before any oil comes down the line.
The man who manages BP's financial affairs is known in the company as ' Q He's very far from the sober pin-striped image of the city banker. But he's the man that the city bankers and brokers wait upon, hoping that they 11 be granted the favour of lending him money.

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.
