Synopsis

We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
A Life on Trial. How bad does someone have to be to deserve to die? In California, the members of a jury who convict a first-degree murderer have to make that decision. Casey Cohen is a private investigator who works for the defence on such trials. His brief is to prepare a picture of the accused to put before the jury, presenting a positive image using personal testimony of friends and relatives. A Life on Trial retraces one of his most difficult cases; that of Richard Ford , a former Los Angeles police officer turned contract killer. The programme features interviews with some of the people Cohen tracked down to testify in favour of Ford, the jurors who had to decide his fate, and Ford himself. Producer David Wilcock
Series editor Jane Drabble (Postponed from 29 July)

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
