The Money Programme celebrates its 150th edition on a blaze of publicity and some nice words from the critics.
"I like The Money Programme, BBC2's equivalent of the business supplements... (Brian) Widlake did the interviews well, asking the right questions, and pressing for the answers. He was firm, but not belligerent, polite, but never obsequious. A very good programme." (Julian Critchley, The Times)
Introduced by Brian Widlake, John Tusa, Peter Ross
