bringing you each week voices of people concerned with the topics and troubles of today Are Immigrants Vital to the Economy?
Two and a half million Commonwealth, Irish, and foreign immigrants live in Britain. One out of every twelve people in our labour force was born abroad. Is this ' brain-and-brawn gain ' offset by adverse effects in other directions? Are wages depressed by an influx of cheap labour? Do immigrants add to inflation and worsen the balance of payments? Could the hospital and transport services operate without them?

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.
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.
