: LET JUSTICE BE DONE

5-The Case of the Stauntons
Narrator, James McKechnie
Script and production by John Gough
This is a classic case of a prosecution for murder by the unusual means of starvation and ill-usage. Louis Staunton, his brother, his brother's wife, and another woman were jointly charged as conspirators, and stood their trial at the Old Bailey in 1877. The dead woman was Louis Staunton's wife.
The Defence held that the extreme emaciation of the body was due, not to forceful confinement and deprivation of food, but to tubercular meningitis (inflammation of the membranes of the brain).
As might be expected, there was a complicated medical conflict. Though all four accused were found guilty, none was executed. The dispute continued to rage long after the trial was over. For instance, the Lancet came out with: ' It must obviously be impossible to prove murder by starvation without first showing death by starvation. The attempt to affirm the primary proposition has failed.*

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
