: Your Money or Your Life

Continuing the series in which financial expert Alvin Hall helps people to regain control over their finances.
Tonight's monetary makeover involves Sam and Alison Bennett from Felixstowe who have two-year-old triplets and all the financial worries that can accompany a multiple birth. During the past two years, the couple have repeatedly been in and out of debt and have only managed to keep afloat thanks to the generosity of their parents.
The Bennetts complain that they cannot afford to buy a house but have spent money on computer games, DVDs and new sofas, while L200 a month goes on cigarettes.
Hall helps them to reorganise their spending, but are Sam and Alison willing to listen to his advice?

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.
