Britain has a budget deficit of £50 billion, a problem to be addressed by the Chancellor on Budget Day next Tuesday. But what does this almost unimaginable figure actually represent, and what could be done to reduce it?
In a series of five programmes being shown each evening between now and Budget Day, a group of six volunteers from Bristol will attempt to find out what the Chancellor could do. Says producer Renee Knight : "Their job is to try and demystify the budget deficit and explain the reasons for It, in language that we can all understand."
Under the guidance of presenter Nisha Pillai , they will also have a specific problem to solve in the course of their investigations: they must recommend a way to knock £5 billion off the deficit.

: Blood and Belonging

Nowhere is nationalism a more sensitive issue than in Germany. "After the Second World War, everybody thought that Hitler had for ever disgraced the notion of German nationalism," says
Michael Ignatleff , writer and presenter of this series. But in his third report - from united Germany - he finds that nationalism is returning under many different guises.
Leo is a Leipzig skinhead, a neo-Nazi who thinks democracy is “unnatural” for Germans and believes that Auschwitz is a historical fabrication. Rosa Wolf is a Frankfurt liberal, who believes Germany should turn its back on the past and look to a future of "world citizenship". But what of those denied belonging, the Turks and other immigrants who have most to lose from the rebirth of nationalism?

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.
