: CRIME AND PUNISHMENT The Money Programme Collared? Fraud on Trial

Since the Serious Fraud Office (SFO) was set up in 1987, there has been a flow of serious and controversial fraud cases: Guinness, Blue Arrow and Barlow Clowes , as well as the Polly Peck affair involving Asil Nadir. But can the SFO be effective when it is working within a criminal justice system not designed for modern, complex fraud cases?
Joshua Rozenberg and Tessa Curtis ask whether its current methods can be improved without risking miscarriages of justice. Presented by Peter Jay. Editor Jane Ellison

: Two Seconds to Midnight

If the life span of the world was a 24-hour clock, humans would appear at two seconds to midnight. In those two seconds, their impact on the planet has been dramatic.
This 90-minute history of the earth is a visual journey through time that uses the full range of special effects. See dinosaurs hatch, hunt reindeer with Neanderthal men and visit the future to discover what life could be like.
But this brief journey through time is from the planet's perspective, and it looks at how, through technology and greater understanding, we can help ensure a brighter future for our world.

A Film Portrait of Alan Clark
The private life of Alan Clark - the most colourful of Margaret Thatcher 's ministers - is as spicy and controversial as his public career. Always in political hot water, Clark now opens the doors on the secret world of Whitehall. A multi-millionaire who lives in a castle in Kent, Clark also owns a vast Highland estate. "He is absolutely dreadful half the time," says his wife Jane, "I do sometimes want to throttle him but I still love him."
In this intimate portrait, Michael Cockerell reveals Clark's remarkable life and loves.

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.
