Panorama

Television's top reporters close in on the most interesting topics of the day
Robin Day, Michael Charlton, Nicholas Harman, Alan Hart, Richard Kershaw, Robert MacNeil, Julian Pettifer

Every day the British puff their way through about 350 million cigarettes. According to one estimate the habit causes a tenth of all deaths. Meanwhile the Government collects its revenue and leaves the smoker free to dice with death. The new Royal College of Physicians report on smoking recommends stronger action. Tonight Michael Charlton looks at what is, and what isn't, being done to stop people smoking.

Nationwide Budget Special

With three million out of work, inflation still in double figures and manufacturing output less than it was during the three-day week, the government's economic strategy is under attack from its own back benches. Can Sir Geoffrey Howe's fourth Budget appease the 'wets' without fuelling inflation? Can he lay the foundations for a Conservative victory at the next General Election? The key passages of today's Budget statement will be carried live in the programme.
David Dimbleby introduces the programme, with expert comment and analysis from Peter Oppenheimer - economist, Philip Hardman - accountant, David Basnett - Chairman of the TUC's Economic Committee, and Sir Terence Meaney - Chief Executive of Thomas Tilling.
From Westminster, Sir Robin Day assesses the political implications of the Chancellor's measures with Denis Healey for Labour, David Steel for the Liberal/Social Democrat Alliance, Sir Ian Gilmour for the Tory sceptics, and Leon Brittan, Chief Secretary to the Treasury for the Government.
From the West Midlands, Nicholas Woolley reports on one factory and on the reaction of the unemployed to the Budget.
From the Stock Exchange in the City of London, Paul Barry reports on the reaction from the financial world, including Dr Paul Neild chief economist with stockbrokers Phillips & Drew.
From a pub in West London, Bill Kerr Elliott reports on reactions from the traditional victims on Budget Day - drinkers, smokers and drivers.

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.
