: THE VERDICT OF THE COURT

A further series of reconstructions of famous trials chosen by Lord Birkett who contributes a postscript
6—The 'Veronica'Trial Murder
Liverpool Assizes-1903
In 1002 the sailing ship Veronica left the Gulf of Mexico for Montevideo with a cargo of timber. During the voyage a mutiny broke out and all but five of the crew of thirteen officers and men were killed. The Veronica was set on fire and the five survivors reached the river Paranahyba in Northern Brazil in the longboat where they were picked up by the steamship Brunswick. In May 1903 three of them were tried for murder at Liverpool Assizes, the other two, one of whom turned King's Evidence, being the principal witnesses for the prosecution.

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.
