The purpose of the training and treatment of convicted prisoners shall be to encourage and assist them to lead a good and useful life. THE PRISON RULES: RULE 1
What sort of life do prisoners lead inside? How does imprisonment change them - does it in fact help them to lead a good and useful life?
First-hand evidence from former prisoners, prison officers, a prison Governor, and others concerned with the treatment of offenders.

PART 2
Music by ANDY PARK
Designer, David McKenzie
Producer, PHARIC MACLAREN from Scotland
When Eddie Prior comes to a Scottish island in search of his allegedly unfaithful wife Helen, he finds that she's been drowned trying to reach the mainland.
Combing the shore for her body, he meets Spinner, an angler with a strange catch-a drowned man whose body the tide takes back.
Meanwhile, his sister-in-law Liz arrives to find Helen's cottage ransacked. The local police sergeant, Forbes, suspects a tinker named Shaw. But Eddie tells Liz that he had seen the drowned man before-in the cottage the previous night.

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 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 find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

This is a historical record of both 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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
