Presented by Louise Botting This week: The 1988.9 Unit Trust Managers Portfolio
Leading fund managers back their judgment on where the best investment prospects lie over the next 12 months. Most investors will think themselves lucky if they have made much profit since last
October's stock market crash, and the managers have certainly found the going tough. So will they be playing for safety with their selections over the next year? Can Japan continue to set the pace or will Europe come back into favour? Is the United States worth following, with the Presidential Election coming up? Is the UK economy growing too fast for comfort?

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.
