The last of three programmes
Again the question posed is; should this man have been found guilty beyond all reasonable doubt? The Case of Little Boy Blue'
John Walters went to prison in 1973, convicted of assaulting a young girl travelling on a train between Wimbledon and Water-' loo. Three railwaymen who saw the attacker board the train and the girl herself all said he was between 5ft 7ins and 5ft 9ins, slimly-built and wearing blue denims. Walters is 6ft, weighs 14 1/2 stone and didn't own any blue denim clothes.
His sentence was four years. Today, eight-and-a-half years later, he is still locked up - this, time in Broadmoor.
Martin Young re-examines the trial and conviction of John Walters.

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.
