The Solitary Billionaire: J. Paul Getty

Alan Whicker reports from a private world.
From his home in Surrey Paul Getty, who is so rich he could buy himself a new mini-car every day for 16,000 years, tells for the first time how he made a billion-and what it has done to him.
Regarded by conservative spenders as a most conservative spender, Getty discusses reports of his meanness... the reason for all those unsuccessful marriages... why he keeps working, making more money, adding to his problems.. what he's had to sacrifice to become the Richest Man.. what he's done to deserve it all... how he spends it! He dodges nothing.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

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.
