5: Betting on a Certainty
When business is good, the Chinese gamble; when business is bad, the Chinese gamble. This unwritten law of economics has made
Stanley Ho so much money that he doesn't even know how much he's worth. Apart from three Rolls-Royces at his Hong Kong house he has property and businesses in Portugal, Spain, Australia, the Philippines and Macau. The flourishing source of all this wealth, as he tells reporter David Lomax , is a string of casinos. How did he set them up? How does he keep coining it in? Why, among his gifts to charities, did he give so much money to the RAF Museum at Hendon? Why does he need the biggest fleet of jet-powered ferries in the world?

: South East Reports

Street Kids
Every year thousands of youngsters end up on the streets of London, looking for a job and a cheap place to live. Some make it, but for far too many of them the dream turns into a nightmare. They end up on the margins of society, without a roof over their heads - scavenging for a living. Few Londoners have any idea about how these thousands of youngsters survive. In the week that an official report shows homelessness at record levels and the homeless getting ever younger, Peter Marshall investigates.

The story of our origins - the origins of our universe, of life and of man - is one of our greatest mysteries. But today, a single coherent account is emerging to explain and link the three events.
Jonathan Miller introduces a search backwards through time for tell-tale traces of the evidence that scientists try to interpret. Paul Vaughan describes some of the most recent studies filmed all round the world.
With insights gained from this new perspective, what can we predict for the future of mankind? Can we expect expansion.... or extinction? Are we the end of the line or just another stage in the origin of something new?

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
