: The Money Programme

The Age Wave. A new age is dawning in the west: old age. People are living longer and producing fewer children, and this trend is leading to profound social change. For the first time in human history, the old will outnumber the young and, within a few years, the impact will hit society hard. The workforce will shrink and the numbers of retired people will swell, so placing an unbearable strain on both pensions and health services. The remedies necessary to stave off disaster are startling, as John Penycate reports.

Editor Peter Maniura
Tate Modem The first in a new four-part series exploring the stories behind the art in the new Tate Modern gallery. Rothko's Rooms. On 25 February 1970, the same day that the great American abstract artist Mark Rothko committed suicide, nine large canvases painted by him -the Seagram Murals - arrived at the Tate gallery. These were originally commissioned for a New York restaurant but withdrawn by the artist, after which the then director of the Tate,
Norman Reid , convinced Rothko that a quiet, meditative room would be set aside for their display at the gallery. This intimate documentary portrait of an intense, dedicated artist contains contributions from Norman Reid , architect Philip Johnson , artist Sean Scully , and Rothko's children and associates. Producer David Thompson ; Executive producer Keith Alexander (S) (W)

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.
