The Law


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.
A feature film specially made for television starring
Judd Hirsch with John Beck , Bonnie Franklin
Barbara Baxley , Sam Wanamaker
Murray Stone , dedicated Los Angeles public defender, has a tough assignment: the defence of a helpless but innocent hippie accused of involvement in a grotesque ritualistic murder. In his search for justice, Stone must use every legal means to make his case around and through other lawyers, judges-and the law itself.
This powerful drama takes a tough, hard look at the inner workings of the judicial system of a big American city.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
