Sir William Pile may well be owed £ 3.000-minion-so he disclosed as Chairman et the Board of Inland Revenue earlier this year. Many would argue that hi& estimate of debtors is modest. Moonlighting, the dodges of the self-employed, tax ' plans' for top people, and the activities of giant multi-nationals, all contribute to a growing sector of Britain's finance - the black economy. To the overworked taxman, it might appear at times a losing battle. But who is the real loser - the country, the honest tax-payer, or those confined by paye? In the second of an investigative series David Perrin surveys the battlefield with the help of experts - and practitioners. Producer RITCHIE COGAN

The Ambassadors by HENRY JAMES adapted for radio in two parts by D. G. BRIDSON Part 1
In his notebooks, Henry James wrote of an older man expressing regret to a young friend: 'live all you can, It's a mistake not to .. I haven't done so - and now I'm old. It's too fate . , , You have time. You are young. Live!' This anecdote was the germ of what was to become The A m bassadors* Lewis Lambert Strether , the hero of the story, a'teo grows to feel the same regret.

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.
