direct from the Stock Exchange At last it's 'Big Bang' day.
Outwardly the City of London will look the same. But inside the Stock Exchange and in the dealing rooms of recently formed financial conglomerates, a new set of free market rules will take effect, ending the system of fixed commissions which for decades have protected the cosy world of stockbrokers and jobbers.
What will it mean for London as a financial centre? Will markets become more volatile? Will investors - from the major institutions down to the man in the street - really get a better deal? These are some of the questions presenter Vincent Duggleby and reporters from the BBC's Financial Unit will be asking in this special progtamme as they capture the action and the atmosphere on Day One of a new era in the City.

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.
