The first of eight programmes. Coventry was one of the West
Midlands' boom cities of the 60s and 70s.... until the recession started biting. By last year
53,000 jobs had been lost - half of them in traditional industries. The seriousness of unemployment is underlined by the fact that nearly 45 per cent of those without jobs have been out of work for more than a year. Only 13 per cent of 16-year-old school-leavers have been able to find jobs in the last year.
Colin Semper talks to the city's leaders politicians, industrialists, union bosses and others - about how the city is coping with its problems. In the first programme he talks to the leader of the Labour-controlled city council, Councillor Peter Lister. Producer ROGER HUTCHINGS BBC Birmingham
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.
