: The End of the Western World

For 500 years the ideas and values that have shaped the world have been western. From the Renaissance to the Industrial Revolution and into the technological age, the west ruled the roost. But now, at the end of the millennium, the world stands on the verge of change. The next century is being described as the Asian Century.
In the first of two programmes,
Martin Jacques goes in search of the secrets of the success of the "tiger" economies of Asia. Hisjoumeytakes him first to the Guangdong province of China, expected to become the powerhouse of China's economy within 20 years. In Malaysia he examines the social engineering used to build a modern nation from colonial roots.
Finally, in Taiwan, he tries to discover whether modernisation is based on eastern values orwhether it follows a blueprint supplied by the west. Producer Mike Smith ; Editor Helen Boaden

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.
