Presented by Brian Widlake and Valerie Singleton Britain 's most popular business and economic programme reporting from far and near on money, large and small.
Featuring this week: The Doxford Affair
Last month M. L. Doxford , a firm of commodity brokers with a list of clients that included some of the richest people in Britain, went bust. With the company's total debts amounting to more than E7 million, Doxford's clients are unlikely to see much of their money back.

: Two Nations

Presented by Eric Robson
For those in work, life has never been better. Living standards are rising and record numbers are booking holidays abroad. For those out of work, prospects have not been bleaker since the 30s. Jobs are getting harder to find and some benefit payments have been reduced. This special programme examines the real divisions and the attitudes that separate the 20 million with work and the three million without it.
From the industrial north-west, David Henshaw reports on how ' proud Preston' is losing its prosperous image, and sliding towards a two-nation town. And in the studio, the people of Preston get the chance to question top representatives of industry, trade unions and politics. With 1,000 new jobs a day needed between now and 1985, just to reduce the dole queues to two million, can we ever get back to full employment? If not, how can a society built on the expectation of work cope with the strains? A specially commissioned opinion poll reveals how much the working nation is prepared to sacrifice to support those who are denied jobs.

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.

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.
