The fifth of a new series of special television debates
That the primary purpose of the criminal courts is, and should be, the punishment of wickedness
LIONEL DAICHES, Q.C. to prove this proposition and BARONESS WOOTTON OF ABINCER to disprove it
Each side calls witnesses to substantiate its argument. The issue is debated before a panel of thirty lawyers and a specialty invited audience.
Lionel Daiches , who lives and practises in the city of Glasgow with its violent crime wave, argues for retribution by society against the criminal.
Barbara Wootton , social scientist and magistrate, contends that the traditional concept of retribution is totally outmoded.

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.
