: The War for Oil

Tony Blair and George W Bush claim the current Iraqi crisis has nothing to do with natural resources, but should Saddam Hussein be deposed, there's little doubt that Iraq's vast oil reserves will be near the top of the agenda. Petroleum companies have already started jostling for a share of the spoils before, as is predicted, the industry heads for decline. The Money Programme asks to what extent oil has motivated the drive to invade Iraq, and reports on the battle to control the commodity in the event of Saddam's defeat.


Producer: David Strahan

: Rehab

Antonia Bird 's latest project is this visceral two-hour drama portraying the harsh realities of life in a drug-rehabilitation centre, as seen through the eyes of a petty criminal. Its subject matter and uncompromising style mean this film is particularly given to strong language, scenes of drug abuse and depictions of sex which some might find disturbing.
In the first part, Adam Bishop adapts to a new routine as tensions among his fellow residents begin to spiral. Then a visit to central London throws their fight with addiction into stark relief. Concludes after Newsnight.
Written by Rona Munro ; Producers Ruth Caleb and Antonia Bird Videoplus code for 9.00-11.50pm (non-PDC)

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.
