6: An End to
Post-war prosperity had rested on a fragile network of economic assumptions - cheap energy, a sound dollar and a free world trading system. President Nixon's measures of 1971 dramatised the fact that the us could no longer provide the world with a gold-backed currency and that the us's national interest came before anything else.
With worldwide inflation rooted in the flood of dollars and the vast increase in oil prices, it was a decade when old certainties were shattered and when new ones remained to be constructed. Presented by Peter Hobday Producer WILL HUTTON

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.
