Inside Story


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 fourth of seven programmes Miscarriage of Justice
In May 1973 two young men were convicted of arson. Each received a term of imprisonment. Two years later, on appeal, they were proclaimed innocent. This film shows how the whole system of justice miscarried by reconstructing the story as it passes through the hands of police, solicitors, barristers and the courts.
That the wrong was righted was partly due to coincidence, but mainly to the fact that one of the accused's father was a rich man, who could afford to employ an intelligent and tenacious private detective. This disturbing story comes in a year in which we have already read of Patrick Meehan , Peter Hain and George Davis.
Next week's Inside Story, Queen's Pardon', examines some of the issues raised when our legal processes fail.

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.
