: Business Matters

Make Money Make Money A Share in the Market In the first of four programmes on how to make your money make more money, Andrew Neil travels the globe as he examines the share market.
Over long periods a balanced spread of shares has been an extremely good investment, giving an average real return of seven per cent a year. But in the short term share prices can fluctuate wildly, and bear little relation to the underlying value of a company.
This programme looks at how professional investors spot which shares are good value; for example Sir John Templeton , who has increased the value of his investments by 4,500 per cent over 30 years.
Andrew Neil finds out how the small investor can apply Templeton's techniques using the financial pages of the newspaper.

Newcastle Disunited
All season Newcastle United has been battling against relegation to stave off a takeover bid from Tyneside property developer John Hall. In what has become the fiercest and costliest war ever fought for control of a football club, all of Newcastle has taken sides.
What is at issue is football's responsibility to the community. Does a club belong to its shareholders or to the fans who are its paying customers? David Taylor reports on a football-mad city that is divided against itself.

: Split Screen

The law should be changed so that a rape victim's sexual history, other than with the defendant, is not admissible in court.
Public concern about the rising number of reported rapes, the ordeal a trial can represent and the effect this may have on a victim's readiness to appear in court has led to pressure to change the law.
Anesta Weeks, a barrister, argues that on the crucial issue of consent, defence barristers all too often exploit a loophole in the 1976 Sexual Offences Amendment Act to cross-examine victims in explicit detail about their sex lives.
Peter Thornton , also a barrister, is sympathetic to the problems facing rape victims and feels that the legal processes can be improved - but not by tilting the scales of justice unfairly against defendants.
Both sides have editorial control over their films.

: Enterprise Culture: Changing the Village

Nobody in England seems to like a jack-the-lad type figure, nobody likes to think that an entrepreneur has come into the village, people do not like change. The law of the enterprise culture is change.

Avebury is a small and beautiful Wiltshire village. St Albans builder, Ken King, has bought the Manor there and wants to develop it into an 'Elizabethan experience'.
But many people in Avebury don't like the change he's proposing: they think his plans smack of vulgarity, of vandalism. Can Ken open on time? Or at all?

Hare's work has explored the morality of public and private life in post-war

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.
