starring and Part 1: 1913 - the normally quiet and conservative community of Atlanta,
Georgia, is rocked by the shocking murder of a 13-year-old factory girl. The accusing finger of the mob comes to rest on the factory's manager, a Jewish New
Yorker called Leo Frank. Based on a true story, this award-winning drama stars Jack Lemmon as the governor who risked his career and his life to fight prejudice, fear and injustice and discover the horrific facts behind the infamous murder of Mary Phagan.

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.
