: Is There Another Keynes Out There?

John Maynard Keynes died in 1946 but the economic theories he developed were successfully used by governments all over the world to produce more than 25 years of unparalleled prosperity.
By the mid-70s however, in the wake of the huge rise in oil prices and mounting inflation, doubts began to set in. Some said Keynesian policies were simply out of date; others that they had always contained the seeds of the own destruction. Rodney Smith , presenter of The Financial World Tonight, set out with the question: ' Is there another Keynes out there? ' - someone with the knowledge and foresight to rescue Britain (and others) from a future of slump and inflation. The answers he found are both challenging and disturbing. Producer WILL HUTTON A Financial World Tonight production

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
