The Accused


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.
First showing on network television of this graphic and disturbing drama starring Jodie Foster
Kelly McGillis
Foster gives an Oscar-winning performance as a woman raped by three men in the games room of her local bar; McGillis is the DA assigned as prosecutor. Her investigation reveals that the woman may have acted provocatively and even taken drugs. But she comes to realise that this should not be allowed to prejudice the case, and so the fight for justice begins.

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.
