: Assignment

Money Madness
In today's financial futures markets, billions of dollars go round the world in seconds in a frenzy of gambling and speculation. Some of the funds dealing with the buying and selling of risk are so complicated and volatile that rocket scientists have been brought in to help operate them.
One of these funds is Steinhardt and Partners. It is known as a hedge fund and it uses money put up by investors to dabble in the futures or "derivatives" markets, bettingoncurrenciesand interest rates. In February 1994 there was panic on the world's markets and prices collapsed. Most of the financial world's high rollers, like Steinhardt and Partners, as well as many pension funds made terrible losses.
In the light of this year's market turmoil, Assignment looks at concerns about gambling in derivatives. It examines the risk it poses to the financial system and asks whether new regulations are needed to control derivatives or should the financial system be totally revamped.

: Uncut

Highlights from recordings made by Video Nation contributors, shown without any editing by the BBC. Men. Contrasting images of masculinity are recorded in these vastly different programmes all made by men. Soldiers play a practical joke on a friend's birthday; an unemployed railway engineer instructs his son about the mysteries of weightlifting; a dragqueen shows off her shoe collection; and. perhaps more traditionally, men at a custom carrally enjoy a wet T-shirt competition.
Viewers are left to make up their own minds about the images of men in this compelling and quirky footage. Producer Mandy Rose ; Executive producer

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.
