An enquiry by GEORGE SCOTT
When did you last buy a new hardback? Some publishers are going out of business: others are being taken over by large (and often international) firms whose primary interest is usually in business rather than books. And yet, at the same time. there are plenty of publishers who seem to he thriving -and new. small, independent publishing firms continue to be set up.
Analysis examines the publishing business, listens to the views of publishers large and small. and considers the related worlds of bookselling, printing. and the public libraries.
Produced by DANIEL SNOWMAN

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.
