: THE VERDICT OF THE COURT

A further series of reconstructions of famous trials chosen by Lord Birkett. who contributes a postscript
2-The Trial of the Wainwrights
Murder
The Old Bailey-November 1875
Henry Wainwright was indicted for the murder of his mistress Harriet Lane, and his younger brother Thomas was charged with being an accessory before and after the fact. The trial has no particular value for the legal historian, but its deep human interest made it one of the outstanding cases of the second half of the nineteenth century.

: THE ANTIQUITY OF MAN

1859 was the year in which scientists accepted a new doctrine-that of the great antiquity of man. Celebrating this centenary, GLYN DANIEL tells the story of the proof found by geologists and archaeologists and announced before the publication of Charles Darwin's Origin of Species in November of the same year.

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.

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.
