Third of six films on culture and identity from a variety of black perspectives.
Within a generation, black and Asian people have brought about far-reaching changes in Britain's culture, becoming a significant economic force in the country.
But money alone can't buy influence and power - it's the colour of your money that counts. "The new black generation's attitude to wealth sees no contradiction between making money and a social conscience," says director Salim Salam. He believes that black people with financial strength should be making it their business to benefit their own communities.
His programme visits black businesses that are trying to combine ethical ways of working with a desire for financial success, without compromising their cultural identity. And Rebel MC, Shiraj Paul and Shanii Ahmed - the man behind Joe Bloggs jeans - explore black attitudes to wealth.

Second of three documentaries exposing the influence of the Gladio, a terrorist network operating throughout Europe. The Puppeteers. In August
1980 a bomb exploded at the railway station in Bologna, Italy. The Red Brigades, a left-wing terrorist organisation, was immediately blamed for the 86 deaths and scores of injured civilians.
But the Red Brigades - which operated much like the Baader Meinhof organisation in Germany and Action Directe in France - had long been penetrated by right-wing agents working for the State.
These agents had only one aim: to instigate such a series of atrocities that terrified civilians would plead for greater state security, even if that meant a loss of personal freedom. Director Allan Francovich Series editor Roy Davies

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.

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.
