The Course of Justice: Juvenile Court


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 series of documentary programmes dealing with the work of Juvenile Courts, Magistrates' Courts, and the Assizes, by Duncan Ross
Introduced by Basil L. Q. Henriques C.B.E., J.P,.
Viewers see a reconstruction of a typical Juvenile Court, somewhere in Central London.
Few people have ever visited a juvenile Court. These courts are not open to the public although the Press are always there to represent the public. The children's ages range from eight to seventeen; their offences from 'findings are keepings' to robbery with violence. Many have committed no offence at all but are in need of care or protection. How are these cases dealt with?


Writer: Duncan Ross
Presenter: Basil L. Q. Henriques

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.
