Murder in Mind: Suicide


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.
Diana Rigg stars in the latest in a series of thrillers.
Years after a boy is driven to suicide by school bullies, his mother avenges his death with cold precision.

Crime Drama: Murder in Mind 9.00pm BBC1
Diana Rigg stars in this psychological thriller as Jill Craig, a 65-year-old widow who's found dead in the opening scenes, having apparently committed suicide by taking an overdose. It may not sound much of a role for one of our finest actresses, but the truth about Jill's death is revealed slowly through flashbacks, and this is where - eventually - we see Rigg.
A neighbour's suspicions lead the police to declare Jill's death a murder, and it doesn't take long before they arrest her handyman, Scott (Nick Reding), a petty villain who has always been a bully. Even though it becomes obvious very quickly what's going on, it's nicely played out and makes for surprisingly engrossing viewing. (Jane Rackham)

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.
