: THE VERDICT OF THE COURT

A further series of reconstructions of famous trials chosen by Lord Birkett who contributes a postscript
3-Bernard Braden in Tilton v. Beecher
An Action for Damages
Brooklyn-January 1875
The Rev. Henry Ward Beecher , lecturer, journalist, and preacher, was a legendary figure in America when this action was heard. Sixty-two years of age, he stood accused of ' criminal conversation ' (adultery) with the wife of his friend Theodore Tilton , a much younger man. Tilton sued for damages of 100,000 dollars. A remarkable story was unfolded in the Brooklyn City Court, and the issue of the trial largely contributed to the ruin of both parties.

: SANDRA GOES TO THE MUSEUM

by Gwen Dunn
There was the Anglo-Saxon skull with a hole for a nose; the Roman beads and bracelets which, alas, were broken; the man in a hat; the Norman tower with its pigeons; and the marvellous model the keeper had made. No wonder Sandra forgot her pill.

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.
