' That the Jury System needs Reform '
Professor EDWARD JENKS and Mr. E. C. K. ENSOR
Trial by Jury is traditionally regarded as the keystone of the Englishman's liberty, second only to his home being his castle. But the system has defects. Sir Mackenzie Chalmers , in 1880, said it was the most expensive mode of trial possible : in civil actions jurymen can be and often are prejudiced, slow, swayed by irrelevances, and apt to award excessive damages when their feelings are aroused. In criminal cases they have been, and often are, chiefly instrumental in humanizing the criminal law. This unfinished debate should raise questions of general interest and provide some lively listening.

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.
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.
