The Journey


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.
Last week, BBC1 showed again a powerful documentary made last year - Fourteen Days in May. It depicted the final two weeks in the life of Edward Johnson, a young black man on death row in Mississippi. Johnson was convicted of killing a white town marshal. He had always strongly proclaimed his innocence.
This April, his lawyer Clive Stafford Smith returned to Mississippi in a bid to discover the truth and clear his client's name. Though it proved a difficult task, he eventually found many people who were prepared to name, on film, the man they claim to be the true killer.
Stafford Smith then learned where the alleged murderer lived. His confrontation with this man provides a remarkable climax to his extraordinary journey.

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.
