Crimewatch File

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.
The Lost Boys
In the first of a two-part programme,
Nick Ross presents a reconstruction of the police investigation into the murder of 14-year-old runaway Jason Swift, which led to the uncovering of a sinister paedophile ring. Within days of the discovery of Jason's body, the hunt was on for the killer of another boy, later identified as 6-year-old Barry Lewis. The bodies of both boys showed traces of the kind of tranquillisers commonly used by paedophiles. Leads from Wandsworth prison eventually revealed that the ring may have been involved with as many as 20 murders of young boys. Next week's programme reconstructs the painstaking follow-on investigation called Operation Orchid. Director/Producer Bridget Sneyd
This month's Crimewatch UK can be seen on Thursday at 9.30pm.

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.
