: ENGLISH LAW

Ten programmes in a Business Studies course
4: Defective Contracts
A contract may be less valid than it first appears for a number of reasons. This week's programme looks at things that can go wrong with contracts. For instance: you sell your car to a schoolgirl who pays by cheque. The cheque bounces.
You win a £ 50 bet with a friend. He refuses to pay.
You buy a patent medicine 'guaranteed to cure everything from hiccup to loss of virility.' You drink it ... and hiccup.
You are an undertaker and you buy a hearse that has been 'totally reconditioned,' and which last transported ' none other than his Grace, the Duke of Burwash.' Neither statement is true.
What is your legal position in these situations?
Written and introduced by Michael Molyneux
Produced by TONY ROBERTS
These programmes are linked with the English Law series broadcast on Thursdays at 6.30 p.m. on Radio 3

: Death of a Miner

A film about a man: a pit: a community, by Philip Donnellan
Celebrating the life of Jack Elliot of Birtley, Co. Durham and his wife Emma.
In 1962 Jack talked to a film camera about his life as a miner, how he had hammered out his social, political, and religious convictions. In 1966 he died. In 1967 the 300-year-old pit where four generations of his family had worked was finally demolished. These events set against the background of change in the North East are the basis of this tribute.
A discussion on the issues arising from this film: next Sunday at 6.15 p.m.

: THE GREAT STARS

of yesterday and today in a season of their most memorable films
JAMES MASON
In
The Decks Ran Red with BRODERICK CRAWFORD
DOROTHY DANDRIDGE Produced by Andrew and Virginia Stone Written and directed by Andrew Stone
Captain Rumill is given command of the SS Bericind, a rusty old freighter, and takes over in a mood of resentment and unrest, which is further increased when he sails from New Zealand with a Maori cook and his extravagantly beautiful wife. This explosive situation is exploited to his own ends by an unscrupulous deck-hand, Scott, and his mate, Martin. They plan to murder the entire crew and then claim salvage money for the ship. But the best-laid plans can go awry.... This suspenseful thriller keeps up its pace throughout, and James Mason gives his usual highly polished performance as the captain. Dorothy Dandridge who became famous following her role in Carmen Jones is suitably sultry as the cook's wife.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.
