with Sue Cook and Nick Ross Three people died in a fire at a house in Northampton.
Police now know it was arson and are hoping a viewer may recognise the distinctive car seen near the scene of the crime. In Salisbury a gang used specialist drilling equipment in a quarter of a million pound robbery of a post office. Several witnesses may not have realised they saw a crime in progress and could supply crucial clues.
And the tragic murder of 84-year-old Ivy Batten at her home near Honiton in Devon. A pair of gloves and other clues left behind could prompt viewers to lead police to her killer.
Detectives from around the country will be waiting for your call to the Crimewatch studio and police officers Helen Phelps and David Hatcher will report for the Incident Desk.

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.
