Your Neighbour's Son
The Making of a Torturer As many as one third of United Nations member states practise torture as a means of enforcing their authority, according to
Amnesty International. This film gives an insight into the mind of the torturer. It tells the story of Michalis Petrou , one of the chief torturers of the Greek Colonels' regime (1967-74), and shows how Petrou was trained. It includes interviews with some of his victims, yet it is not just about what happened in Greece. It is an account of the kind of training and indoctrination that makes young people perpetrate the most terrible acts of mental and physical cruelty. It is an account of what could happen to your neighbour's son.
The repeat showing of this highly acclaimed film introduces next week's
Everyman, a study of the therapy of torture victims. Written and directed by JOERGEN FLINDT PEDERSEN and ERIK STEPHENSEN Produced by EBBE PREISLER FILM/TV APS
Series producer DANIEL WOLF (R)


Unknown: Michalis Petrou

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.
