Berta Ruck the writer of popular romances recalls some of the highlights of her long life

: THE VERDICT OF THE COURT

Reconstructions of famous trials chosen by Lord Birkett who contributes a postscript
4-The Trial of Dr. Lamson
Murder
The Old Bailey-March 1882
Dr. Lamson was charged with the murder of his nephew Percy Malcolm John, a seventeen-year-old crippled schoolboy, by administering aconitinea vegetable alkaloid about which little was known. The case is remarkable for several reasons, not least for the courage shown by the expert medical witnesses for the Crown during experiments carried out to establish the poison used.

: WHAT MEN SAY AND WHAT THEY DO

Some thoughts occasioned by a visit to
Frank Lloyd Wright and Mies van der Rohe by Peter Smithson
Frank Lloyd Wright , the doyen of American architects who had virtually become a myth in his own lifetime, died earlier this year. Mies van der Rohe , another outstanding international architect, has recently received the R.I.B.A.'s gold medal for architecture from the Queen.
Peter Smithson , himself a practising architect, was in the United States shortly before Frank Lloyd Wright 's death. In this broadcast he creates a kind of double profile of the two men after having visited them both in their own surroundings within the space of twenty-four hours.

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.
