The Price of Advice
The boon in credit has caused gloom for advice agencies, overwhelmed by people who have fallen into debt.
Organisations like the Citizens Advice Bureaux do not have the funds to provide the advice needed. Should the credit companies, banks and building societies pay for the service? John Howard looks at such a scheme operating in the United States, where even the finance companies have found it advantageous. He puts the findings to the Office of Fair Trading, the debt counsellors and organisations offering credit.

Morocco, Tunisia and Algeria are known as the Maghreb states - those at the western extreme of the Arab world. They have a distinct feel to them that sets them apart from the rest of the region. Each state supports the idea of Maghreb unity; but so far that has remained elusive. Morocco, with its ancient walled cities; Tunisia, with its tourist beaches and growing problems of Islamic fundamentalism; and Algeria, with its austere socialist system: what unites and divides the Maghreb states? Producer ALAN WILDING (e)

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.
