PRISONER AT THE BAR

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 Edgar Lustgarten
5-Jean Pierre Vaquier
' Justice was done all right' is Mr. Lustgarten's verdict on the story of the Joneses and their encounter with the vain and lively little French engineer in 1924. ' Justice was done all right. But that doesn't altogether obscure the human tragedy-the tragedy of these three people, all in middle life, two of whom met violent death and the third of whom was widowed, all as a result of an unpremeditated folly.'
This. the final programme in the present series, is a new recording of the broadcast of February 1952

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.
