: The Money Programme

Presented by Brian Widlake and Valerie Singleton with PAUL BARRY , NICK CLARKE , MARK ROGERSON and LUKE CASEY Featuring this week: GATT rules not OK
Tomorrow world leaders meet in Geneva aiming to avert a world trade war. It's ten years since the last meeting to discuss the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade. Since then, booming manufacturing in the Far East and in the less developed nations has wrought havoc in western markets and industries. The result has been wholesale flouting of trade rules and widespread ' dirty tricks' among exporting and importing nations. Paul Barry reports on the chances of establishing a new trade order.
Plus Money Maker, on how to make the best of your savings.

Seaman John Baggs Jr is a nice, easy-going kind of guy. He's interested in two things only: women and killing his old company commander. Put ashore in Seattle for an operation, he devotes his boundless energies to both interests. Happily he meets a beautiful hooker, Maggie Paul, and love blossoms. Only her 11-year-old mulatto son, Doug, stands in the way of domestic bliss. A sharply observed social comedy where each laugh hides a tear.

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.
