: The Money Programme

Silent raider: Ron Brierley is one of the least understood
'corporate raiders' from
Down Under. Unlike some, whose borrowing has undermined business empires, this quiet, retiring New Zealander is still building stakes in British companies - and often demanding massive change. Is Ron Brierley an asset stripper, or a revitaliser of tired management?
Peter Eustace reports on the experience of a number of UK firms and in an exclusive interview with Mike Peschard ,
Ron Brierley defends his actions.
Burnt fingers: until recently Vallin Pollin was one of the premier financial public relations firms in London.
Then it decided to expand in America. It bought the Carter Organisation from wheeler-dealer Ron Carter for$75 million and slumped from healthy profit to loss within one financial year. Jeffrey Ferry reports from New
York and London on how another London success story fell flat on Wall Street. Producers Martin Small and Gerry Baker

: The Reivers

Steve McQueen
This screen version of William Faulkner 's novel, set at the turn of the century, provides a swashbuckling role for
Steve McQueen as the hero, Boon Hogganbeck , in a series of misadventures.
Boon is a romantic: a man who cannot resist a pretty woman, a shiny automobile or a horse that might win a race. So when his boss takes delivery of a gleaming yellow Winton Flyer jalopy, the temptation is too great. In no time at all, Boon is bowling down the road to Memphis, together with Ned the stableman and young Lucius.
Director Mark Rydell

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.
