A Victorian Martyrdom with and In 1885 General Charles Gordon was killed by the Mahdist forces as they overran Khartoum in the Sudan. He has been variously portrayed as martyr, evangelist, soldier of genius, hero, poseur, fraud, alcoholic and misfit.
Did Gordon welcome his martyrdom - or at least make it inevitable? What does his death tell us about Victorian values? What does it tell us about the lone, obstinate and committed hero during any age?
Narrator Ronald Baddiley Script by DENIS JUDD

Six talks about the influence of economic ideas on policy by David Henderson , Head of the Economics and Statistics
Department in the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).
3: Needs, Centralism and Autarchy
'Western governments have made considerable progress, some of it quite recent, in freeing internal markets for energy products. Where they have failed to act, largely because of the dominance of mistaken economic notions, is in establishing and making acceptable the principle that even in times of perceived scarcity energy markets should be allowed to function freely and prices should reflect willingness to pay. Because of this failure, the risk of another energy crisis is greater than it need be, and the possible consequences more alarming.'

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.
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.
