Panorama

Synopsis

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.
Presented by Richard Lindley
On 24 March 1980 an armed gang hi-jacked a lorry carrying over £3 million worth of silver bullion.
It was one of Britain's biggest robberies and when most of the bullion was recovered three months later it was described as a major coup for Scotland Yard's Robbery Squad. A year later it emerged that a huge reward had been paid to an anonymous informer. But Panorama tonight reveals that a senior Scotland Yard policeman tried to block that payment. The programme also reveals disturbing new evidence about the man who masterminded the robbery and the damage he has done to what the Yard has called its main weapon in the fight against organised crime, the supergrass system.

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.
