A History of the Crusades
A series of eight programmes presented by Malcolm Billings 4: The survival of the crusaders in the East was always finely balanced. In 1144, the crusader state of Edessa fell to the troops of Imad ad-Din Zengi. It was a severe shock to the West and led to calls for a new crusade. The
Pope responded with plans for a crusade not only to the Holy
Land but also to Spain, Portugal and the Baltic. But were his ambitions too grand and the Infidel too strong? The Battle of Hattin in 1187 was to be a turning point for the Kingdom of Jerusalem.

City Rules OK?
Although the Big Bang has transformed the way the City's brokers, dealers and merchant bankers conduct their business, the tradition of self-regulation still forms the basis of the rules. But is this enough to guarantee the standing of London as an international market? Do recent disclosures demonstrate the success of the system or its failure?
Adrian Hamilton examines the regulation issues facing the practitioners, the Government and the Bank of England. Producer FRASER STEEL
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.
