Rhodesia's choice is made in her general election. The black-dominated electorate has said what it wants - but as the verdict sinks in, how are the new rulers going to shape up? What are the hopes for racial, tribal and political tolerance-and the prospects for industry, agriculture and trade? How will the new government make friends with the rest of Africa. black and white, and with the world beyond? John Timpson looks at these and other aspects of the election aftermath, in another broadcast direct from Salisbury.

Themes from the 70s. A series of ten programmes 7: The New Rich
In the autumn of 1973 the Shah of Iran saw his country's oil revenue quadruple. He determined to use the money to make Iran the dominant military and economic power in the Near East. But his plans for the construction of what was called the Great Civilisation took no account of popular resentment at the disruption of traditional social and religious values.
With the help of eyewitnesses and participants in the events described, David Lay traces the course of the Iranian Revolution, and the consequences it might have for other countries in the Persian Gulf.

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.
