Presented by Louise Botting The 1987-8 Unit Trust Managers' Portfolio
Leading fund managers back their judgment on where the best investment prospects lie over the next 12 months.
Shareholders have enjoyed substantial gains in the past year, especially in the UK. But there's a feeling that the bear market could be just round the corner, so will the managers be playing for safety?
Will Britain be the first choice or will Europe come back into favour? Will returns be better from the USA or from some of the fast-growing economies in the Far East? Will political uncertainty give a further boost to gold and commodities?
Hear what the experts choose and then try your hand at the 'Money Box' listeners' Unit Trust Competition. Details from: Money Box, BBC, London W1A 4WW

Tumtitititumtitititumtum Love it or loathe it, Ravel's Boléro is one of the most performed pieces in the concert repertoire.
For conductor Bramwell Tovey it's full of great moments; Jack Brymer thinks it's like being hit behind the ear with a sockful of wet sand; and trombonists and side drummers get a severe case of the 'pearlies'. Musicians, impresarios and the words of Ravel comment on Boléro. Stereo

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.
