: The Search for the Marcos Millions

A second chance to see this Emmy award-winning documentary.
Three days after the late
President Marcos had been ousted from power, the new Philippines government set up a special commission to trace millions of dollars that he and his wife Imelda were thought to have spirited out of the country.
Left behind in the presidential palace were documents pointing to a fortune hidden in offshore companies and secret Swiss bank accounts.
Tonight's programme follows the complex trail of that fortune around the world. Private videotapes, shot by the Marcos family, reveal the lavish lifestyle which belied his official income of $5,600 a year.
The director William Cran confronted the Marcoses who were living in their place of exile in Hawaii, with the evidence.

Ever since Floyd read
Hemingway's The Old Man and the Sea, he has wanted to fish in the same waters as his idol.

'A man can go mad stuck out here, under a merciless sun,' says our intrepid gastronaut, 'but it hasn't affected me, which is just as well with all these damned hedgehogs around.'

: The Road to War

Eight country-by-country accounts of the origins of the Second World War written and narrated by Charles Wheeler.
7: USA
When war broke out in 1939, millions of Americans were determined to stay out of another European conflict. America was isolationist.
But Britain's near defeat in the war brought about a change of opinion. As debate raged between the interventionists, and isolationists, President
Roosevelt steered his country towards war.
By 1941, and the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, America was ready to enter the world stage once again.

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.
