: The Philpott File: Inside a Multinational

The fifth of nine films 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 the oil got to market.
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'll be granted the favour of lending him money.

: The Man from Atlanta

A profile of Ted Turner , a man who can justly claim to have revolutionised American television. Using satellites and the ever-growing cable system, his local Atlanta television station now reaches an estimated 25 million American homes across the continent. He pioneered 24-hour cable TV news and this year pre-empted his network opposition by starting a second non-stop cable news channel from Turner Broadcasting. A colourful and outspoken southern millionaire, Turner is known in America as ' Captain Outrageous ' after his 1977 victory in the America's Cup yacht races. Narrated by IAIN JOHNSTONE

: Third Eye

The last in a series of personal views from the Third World.
Nicaragua: a Dangerous Example
Xabier Gorostiaga is a Jesuit priest and a revolutionary - he sees no conflict in being both. Like many Latin American countries today his country, Nicaragua, suffered under a brutal dictatorship - until 1979 wtien there was a popular insurrection and a new revolutionary government was set up. That government's goal is to create a democratic society and to bring about a radical improvement in the lives of the poor. Xabier Gorostiaga explains how these goals have come under attack from a sector inside the country and, perhaps more significantly, from the United States. Gorostiaga believes the United States feels threatened by the existence of a non-aligned independent nation in its Central American backyard and is determined to prevent the example spreading.

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.
