Presented by Louise Botting The winds of change are blowing strongly through the financial markets as the big institutions compete ever more fiercely for the chance to look after your money. Every week new products are launched to join an already bewildering array of schemes, while at the same time economic conditions are constantly changing.
How quickly will inflation come down? What is the outlook for interest rates? Will investors really get enough protection from dishonesty and incompetence? What is going to happen to pensions and benefits?
These are the sort of questions the Money Box team tackles every week with the help of experts from the fields of banking, housing, insurance, investment, tax and social security.

Narrator John Rowe with Garard Green and Narissa Knights
In 1897, at the age of 20, Isabelle Eberhardt had her first sight of the Sahara. At once she fell under its spell. For the next seven years the desert was her life. But death in the desert, when it came, had a tragic irony which even Isabelle might have relished.

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.

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.
