The Money Programme
The Money Programme logo 2006
The Money Programme is the BBC's flagship business affairs programme.

It has been reporting on the business and financial world for the past 37 years and has won many awards for its coverage.

The programme's job is to investigate the important stories in business and finance and to show how big business really works and how it affects all our lives.

The programme is broadcast at 7pm UK time on Fridays on BBC TWO. There are also a number of specials produced by the Money Programme team that are broadcast in later evening slots.

The series ranges from hard-hitting investigations into financial scandals to observational documentaries with access to some of the biggest companies in the UK.

Recent successes include "Mortgage Madness", which revealed widespread abuse in the selling of self-certification mortgages with advisers encouraging home-buyers to lie about their income to get bigger mortgages. That won the Television Programme of the Year Award at the Harold Wincott Press and Broadcasting Awards 2003.

An investigation into the problems at McDonald's - "Big Mac Under Attack" - won the best television programme award at the Business Journalist of the Year Awards 2003 and the whole series won the TV Programme Award at the Workworld Media Awards 2003 run by the Work Foundation.
